AARST Comment on EPA Notice about Credentialing Bodies

In August 2017, EPA issued a Federal Register notice that the Agency intends to establish voluntary criteria for a standard of competence for organizations that credential radon service providers.  AARST supports EPA resuming its statutory role. In its November 2017 comment, AARST recommended that EPA create and maintain systems for a balanced group of stakeholders to define minimal requirements for credentialing bodies (i.e. proficiency programs), to develop Jobs, Tasks and Skills Analyses for nationally-defined radon certifications that each credentialing body (including NRPP) would use, and to maintain a secure exam test data base.
