The National Radon Proficiency Program (formerly NEHA-NRPP) is the leading certification program for radon professionals in North America. We’re pleased to note that our program was officially deemed equivalent to the USEPA’s certification program in 2001. Through the professional efforts of the National Environmental Health Association and the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists, and the independent oversight of both an independent Policy Advisory Board and Education Advisory Board, consisting of 16 public and private sector officials, educators, practitioners and well respected scientists, the NRRP program has grown into the largest body of radon professionals anywhere in the world.
The NRPP program and the Policy Advisory Board are supported administratively through both the staff of the American Association of Radon Scientist’s and independent scientists and technical advisors who serve on the AARST Technical and Science committee.
Individuals and laboratories holding NRPP certification have not only met the requirements set forth by the original EPA program, but we are constantly looking for ways to raise the standards of professionalism. The NRPP logo carries both the tradition and commitment of the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists, Inc. and the responsibility to full compliance with national standards and regulations. We encourage and support true compliance with the recognized standards of practice as we believe this will protect public health and safety. We fully support state and local regulations that seek to bring about professional compliance and recognize the best practices. Consumer may direct complaints to the Policy Advisory Board through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Consumers are encouraged to educate themselves about the harmful effects of radon gas, as well as the methodologies used to measure and reduce radon levels within their living environments. Find a Radon Professional will assist consumers to locate a NRPP certified professional. Consumer Checklist for Radon will provide additional information and guidelines about radon risk factors and also how to go about contracting a radon professional
