NORMI PROPOSES MOLD INSPECTION AND REMEDIATION REGULATIONS

A NOTE from D. Douglas Hoffman, Executive Director-

"Many progressive Legislators and Senior Statesmen are now considering the need for good mold licensing legislation at the State level. Currently only two states have such laws governing the licensing of mold inspectors and mold remediators and the tendency to over- or under-regulate seems to produce unwanted results. On one extreme a law could be so strictly written so that anyone who touches mold is considered a candidate for licensing and that would drive those who want to work in the mold industry out of the state into neighboring states. At the other extreme, the law might so vague that it could apply to no one as well as it applies to everyone. In either case the public and the industry loses. The need for good clear legislation is what prompted our effort here. We believe we have succeeded with what follows here. It is not perfect but it is a place to start.

A good comprehensive piece of legislation takes time and money to make into law. NORMI does not have the enormous resources required to "lobby" for what we know is to the benefit of our industry in regards to licensing. What we DO have is large network of trained professionals with years of experience in the mold industry and a burning desire to help any legislating or regulatory body develop a mold licensing law that 1) specifically defines this niche industry for what it is without over-regulating the construction industry, 2) accurately identifies the roles for various licensees, and 3) does not create an undo burden or hardship on the public, the licensees, or the regulatory agencies but will still efficiently monitor the growth of this industry.

Our desire is to put this in the hands of those who are interested is spiriting our cause. We believe NORMI has the answer for indoor air quality issues like mold and as we have developed this licensing legislations and protocols for the assessment, sanitization, and removal of mold, we are also working on long-term protocols for long-term warranties so homeowners and building owners alike can be assured a clean indoor air environment for themselves and those they protect."

D. Douglas Hoffman
Executive Director of NORMI
