Using Radon Proficient Devices on your Mandatory Radon Testing
Facilities required to test for radon can perform their own testing with their own personnel using proficient devices. The testing can be done with test kits found in hardware stores, department stores, and grocery stores or with kits ordered through the mail. The only requirement on the kits is that they have passed one of the two current proficiency programs: the National Environmental Health Association or the National Radon Safety Board. Participation in these programs is voluntary for the kit manufacturers, but it is the only recognized independent check for a laboratory's accuracy.
If a facility tests itself, it is responsible for following the procedures in Florida Administrative Code 64E-5 Parts X and XII, filling out the appropriate report form and mailing it to this office. You can contact the radon program office with any questions. We will be happy to advise you on the testing procedures.
