We were asked to back up our advice or opinion on a situation this week regarding an install by another company.

Read the letter announcing closure of National Radon Proficiency Program (RPP) dated July 30, 1998
EPA-issued Radon Measurement (RMP) and Mitigation (RCP) Program photo-identification cards, and ANY item with EPA’s logo or name, listing letters and identification numbers has not been valid since EPA closed its proficiency program in October 1998. Consequently, persons and companies should not represent themselves, their products or their services as “EPA Listed” or “EPA Approved” or “Meets EPA Requirements” or otherwise imply an EPA sanction.
