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

RST will be beginning the public review process to ensure this document also becomes a full consensus standard under the accreditation of the American National Standards Institute.”

AARST Executive Director Peter Hendrick has said that testing and mitigating multifamily housing for radon will reduce not only health risks but will reduce liability for apartment managers, developers and the multifamily housing sector.

"This is both a health risk issue and a risk management issue for the housing sector," said Hendrick.

AARST estimates that over 8 million American homes and 70,000 classrooms have high levels of radon in them.

The American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists is an ANSI accredited standards writing organization and they have previously produced and published an American National Standard for multifamily measurement: "The ANSI-AARST Protocol for Conducting Radon and Radon Decay Product Measurements in Multifamily Buildings."

The mitigation guidance document was processed in accordance with AARST requirements for stakeholder balance and consensus within the RMS-MF subcommittee assigned to Radon Mitigation Standards for Multifamily Buildings.

The new standard will be available online at AARST Bookstore,

AARST is a non-profit professional association dedicated to high standards of practice for testing and mitigation of radon in homes and commercial buildings.
