Regulatory Update   |   Nov 5th, 2015 New Mold Licensing Requirements Set to Go Into Effect in New York State


Beginning on January 1, 2016, any personnel who perform mold inspection, assessment or remediation work within New York State must be licensed by the New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL).

Property owners/managers, mold remediation assessors, contractors and field workers should prepare now to meet these new obligations or consider what outside resources will be necessary to remain operational and compliant.

Please download TRC's latest Regulatory Update to learn more about:

  • Licensing requirements including training courses, exams and fees;
  • Exemptions;
  • Minimum work standards; and
  • Preparing for compliance, including working with outside contractors.

Federal, state and local guidelines recommend mold assessment and remediation occur as rapidly as possible to ensure a healthy environment. To avoid any delays, it is important to prepare now to meet the effective date of certification requirements in New York State. Outside, licensed assessors may be needed.
