April 28, 2004: Texas Adopts Final Rules On Mold
The amendments include:
Application forms for licensing of laboratories and accreditation of training providers are expected to be available by May 20, 2004, the anticipated effective date of the rules. Licensing of individuals and companies and registration of mold remediation workers will begin after the state examinations have been developed that individual applicants for licensing will be required to take and pass. The first exams will be offered this summer.
The rules allow a grace period through Jan. 1, 2005, to allow time for those conducting mold-related activities to obtain licensure before being out of compliance with the law.
