Get live help for your radon questions. Radon Measurement in Schools Revised Edition – Second Printing This report was prepared to provide school administrators and facilities managers with instructions on how to test for the presence of radon.
Radon Standards of Practice | National Radon Program Services
Call Us National Radon Hotline: Congress in the 146-508a Radon Abatement Act, is to reduce indoor radon as close to the levels of outside air as is practicable. What do they mean? This technical guidance document has been prepared to serve as a comprehensive aid in the asfm selection, 14655-08a, installation, and operation of indoor radon reduction measures for existing houses based on active soil depressurization techniques. Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E06 on Performance of Buildings, this practice was withdrawn in July in accordance with Section Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, and chemically inert radioactive gas.
Standards and protocols for conducting radon measurement and mitigation activities have been available since the early s, and were developed in several ways: Office of Research and Development. The radon concentration in outside air is assumed to be 0.
Radon systems with fan-powered type pipe routes allow the greatest architectural freedom for vent stack routing and fan d. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
Protocols for Measuring Radon and Radon Decay Products in School and Large Buildings MALB This new American National Standard addresses the complexities of properly measuring radon in large and complicated building structures that require specialize techniques and quality control and assurance to address complicated building w and specialized airflow. Radon Mitigation Standards for Schools and Large Buildings RMS-LB This new American National Standard addresses the complexities of properly mitigating radon in large and complicated building structures that require specialized techniques and quality assurance to address complicated building designs and specialized airflow.
Radon reduction for existing low rise residential buildings is covered by Practice Eor by state and local asfm codes and radiation protection regulations. It is formed by the natural 1465–08a decay of uranium in rock, soil, and water. Historically, far more fan-powered soil depressurization radon reduction systems have been successfully installed and operated than all other radon reduction methods combined.
Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. Radon Mitigation Standards for Multifamily Buildings RMS-MF This new American National Standard addresses the complexities of properly mitigating multifamily dwelling over four units that require specialize techniques and quality assurance.
The standard, designated CCAH, is written in code language. EPA Radon Measurement in Schools Revised Edition – Second Printing This report was prepared to provide school administrators and facilities managers with instructions on how to test for the presence of radon. Technical Guidance Third Edition for Active Soil Depressurization Systems This technical guidance document has been prepared to serve as a comprehensive aid in the detailed selection, design, installation, and operation of indoor radon reduction measures for existing houses based on active soil depressurization techniques.
These methods are not the only methods for reducing indoor radon concentrations National Radon Program Services. Stay on Page Continue to Compass. Purchase radon test kits by phone. One or more of these standards have been recognized or adopted in several ways: The radon fan should be installed after 1 an initial radon test result reveals unacceptable radon concentrations and therefore a need for an operating radon fan, or 2 the owner has specified an operating radon fan, as well as acceptable radon test results before occupancy.
This practice covers the design and construction of two radon control options for use in new low-rise residential buildings.
Radon Standards of Practice
Testing for it is the only way of telling how much is present. These protocols provide method-specific technological guidance that can be used as the basis for standard operating procedures. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
These unobtrusive built-in soil depressurization options are installed with a pipe route appropriate for their intended initial mode of operation, that is, fan-powered or 14655-08a. For general information on fixing or reducing the radon level in your home. The goal of this practice is to make available new residential buildings with indoor radon concentrations below 2.
Astmm practice also can be used as a reference for the federal, state, and local health officials and radiation protection agencies. Indoor Radon and Radon Decay Product Measurement Device Protocols This document provides information, recommendations, and technological guidance for anyone providing measurement services using 146508a radon and radon decay product measurement methods. It is intended for use by radon mitigation contractors, building contractors, concerned homeowners, state and local officials and other interested persons.
It 1456-08a be found in all 50 states.
The findings from EPA’s comprehensive studies of radon measurements in schools were incorporated into these recommendations. Here are the currently available standards, listed from most satm produced to older standards. When the radon test results for a building with an operating passive system are not acceptable, that system should be converted to fan-powered operation.
