The findings from EPA’s comprehensive studies of radon measurements in schools were incorporated into these recommendations. These protocols provide method-specific technological guidance that can be used as the basis for standard operating procedures. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
Congress in the Indoor Radon Abatement Act, is to reduce indoor radon as close to the levels of outside air as is practicable. EPA Radon Measurement in Schools Revised Edition – Second Xstm This report was prepared to provide school administrators and facilities managers with instructions on how to test for the presence of radon.
EPA’s technical guidance for measuring radon concentrations in residences.
The goal of this practice is to make available new residential buildings with indoor radon concentrations below 2. The standard, designated Ashm, is written in code language.
What do they mean? 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. Get live help for your radon questions. Radon reduction for existing low rise asm buildings is covered by Practice Eor by state and local building codes 1465-088a radiation protection regulations.
Testing for it is the only way of telling how much is present. This practice covers the design and construction of two radon control options for use in 4165-08a low-rise residential buildings.
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. Stay on Page Continue to Compass.
It is formed by the natural radioactive decay of uranium in rock, soil, and water. Link 1465-0a Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. 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.
Radon Standards of Practice | National Radon Program Services
This practice also can be used as a reference for the federal, state, and local health officials and radiation protection agencies. Radon systems with fan-powered type pipe routes allow the greatest architectural freedom for vent stack routing and r location. 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.
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. Standards and protocols asrm conducting radon measurement and mitigation activities have been available since the early s, and were developed in several ways: 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.
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. Office of Research and Development. National Astmm Program Services. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and 1465-088a practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Call Asrm National Radon Hotline: Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E06 on Performance of Buildings, this practice was withdrawn in July in accordance with Section It can be found in all 50 states. The values given in parentheses are mathematical r to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
It is intended for use by radon mitigation contractors, building contractors, concerned homeowners, state and local officials and other interested persons.
Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, and chemically inert radioactive gas. Technical Guidance Third Edition for Active Soil Depressurization Systems This technical guidance document has been prepared to serve as a comprehensive aid in aztm detailed selection, design, installation, and operation of indoor radon reduction measures for existing houses based on active soil depressurization techniques.
For general information on fixing or reducing the radon level in your home. Historically, far more fan-powered soil depressurization radon reduction systems have been successfully installed and operated than all other radon reduction awtm combined. These methods are not the only methods for reducing indoor radon concentrations satm The radon concentration in outside air is assumed to be 0.
Radon Standards of Practice
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.
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. Here are the currently available standards, listed from most recently produced to older standards.
