Virginia reverses law requiring license for mold inspection, remediation
The IICRC continues to closely follow state legislation and licensing in the mold remediation industry, including the latest change in the state of Virginia. On April 18, a law was enacted in Virginia to repeal the licensing requirement for companies providing mold inspection and remediation services in the state. After July 1, the day the repeal goes into effect, registrants will no longer be required to have a state license in order to perform these services.
This reversal becomes law exactly one year after Virginia originally issued a law requiring that all mold inspectors and remediators obtain a Virginia Board for Asbestos, Lead, Mold, and Home Inspectors’ mold remediator worker, mold remediator supervisor or mold inspector license to legally operate in the state.
