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 r the owner has specified an operating radon fan, as well as acceptable radon test results before occupancy. National Radon Program Services.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Call Us National Radon Hotline: It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and 4165-08a 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 passive.
Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, and chemically inert radioactive gas. Stay on Page Continue to Compass. It is formed by the natural radioactive decay of uranium in rock, soil, and water.
Radon Measurement in Schools Revised Edition – Second Printing This report was prepared to provide school 1465-08q and facilities managers with instructions on how to test for the presence of radon. Here are the currently available standards, listed from most recently produced to older standards. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that ast provided for information only and are not considered standard. Radon Mitigation Standards for Schools and Large Buildings D 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.
The standard, designated CCAH, is written in code language. Technical Guidance Third Edition for Active Soil Depressurization Systems Aatm 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. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

These protocols provide method-specific technological guidance that can be used as the basis 165-08a standard operating procedures. 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.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E06 on Performance of Buildings, this practice was withdrawn in July in accordance with Section Indoor Radon and Radon Decay Product Measurement Device Protocols This document provides information, recommendations, and technological guidance for anyone providing measurement services using 15 radon and radon decay product measurement methods.
It atsm intended for use by radon mitigation contractors, building contractors, concerned homeowners, state and local officials and other interested persons. 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 designs and specialized airflow.
Office of Research and Development. These methods are asgm the only methods for reducing indoor radon concentrations This practice covers the design and construction of two radon control options for use in new low-rise residential buildings. The radon concentration in outside air is assumed to be 0. 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.
The findings from EPA’s comprehensive studies of radon measurements in schools were incorporated into these recommendations.
Congress in the Indoor Radon Abatement Act, is to reduce indoor radon as close to the levels of outside air as is practicable. EPA’s technical guidance for measuring radon concentrations in residences.
One or more of these standards have been recognized or adopted in several ways: Get live help for your radon questions.

Radon Standards of Practice
Historically, far more fan-powered soil depressurization radon reduction systems have been successfully installed and operated than all other radon reduction methods combined. This practice also can be used as a reference for the federal, state, and local health officials and radiation protection agencies. Testing for it is the only way of telling how much is present. Radon reduction for existing low rise residential buildings is covered by Practice Eor by state and local building codes and radiation protection regulations.
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.
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.
