The state of Virginia has regulated Mold Inspectors and Mold Remediators since 2001, when the duties of the Virginia Board of Asbestos, Lead, Mold, and Home Inspectors were expanded to include home inspectors and mold remediators / inspectors.
The Deregulation of Mold Remediators and Mold Inspectors
As part of Governor Bob McDonnell’s plan to streamline government, “needless licensing and regulatory requirements” have been eliminated, thus deregulating mold remediation and mold inspection.
“We identified three professions [Interior Designers, Hair Braiders, and Mold Remeidators / Mold Inspectors] that we believe are better served if no longer regulated by the state,” said McDonnell.
The plan also includes the elimination of two state agencies, the merging of seven state agencies into others, the elimination of 19 boards and commissions, and the merging of 23 boards and commissions to form 11 boards and commissions.
“In this tough economy, when families are struggling to make ends meet and business owners are facing declining revenues and tough choices, we simply cannot afford a government that just grows bigger and bigger with each passing year,” said McDonnell.
The Virginia legislature recently approved the McDonnell’s plan, which will go into effect on July 1st of this year.
