Standard of Care
In December 2012, The American Lung Association (ALA) published a Standard of Care for the New Hampshire Mold Industry in association with the New Hampsire Mold Task Force (NHMTF).
The standard declares that "third party certifications are essential in both protecting the citizens of New Hampshire as well as maintaining the credibility of mold professionals and the industry as a whole." It recommends that consumers look for ACAC certifications when hiring mold professionals.
This non-binding document is the basis for proposed legislation in New Hampshire and serves as a model for similar legislative efforts in other states.
