American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST) Releases Nation's First Standard for Mitigating Radon (Radioactivity) in Multifamily Buildings
Date:2/1/2013

Fletcher, North Carolina (PRWEB) February 01, 2013

The AARST Consortium on National Radon Standards has announced the release of a Provisional American National Standard for radon mitigation professionals entitled, "Radon Mitigation Standards In Multifamily Buildings." The new document establishes preliminary standards for mitigating multifamily housing in the United States.

The American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST) believes this material necessary for fixing the problem of radon exposure (radioactivity) in multi-family housing.

“Up until now," said Gary Hodgden, Chair of the Executive Stakeholder Committee at AARST’s Standards Organization, “we have been witnessing that building owners and occupants of multifamily buildings are conducting radon testing but are faced with a problem. No standards or guidance documents have existed for mitigating radon (radioactivity) from apartments or multifamily dwellings.”

"I am happy to report that a document now exists to help remedy that situation.

"This guidance document will save American lives.”

“According to the US census in 2000, approximately 25% of Americans live in multifamily buildings that include condos or apartments. AARST members have found that risks associated with radon gas (radioactivity) in single family homes are also found in multifamily buildings in those same areas. That is a large portion in the United States. As more of these millions of families test for radon (radioactivity), the need for appropriate mitigation guidance has grown.”

Hodgden said the standard will be undergoing the consensus standards development process following AARST’s accredited procedures towards final publication within two years as a completed American National Standard (ANS.)
