Radon Laws and Rules

The Minnesota Radon Licensing Act (Minnesota Statutes 144.4961) was passed by the legislature and signed into law in May 2015. This act gives Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) the authority to write rules and enforce laws related to the radon industry in the state.

Professionals and companies that measure for radon, mitigate for radon or perform radon analysis in the State of Minnesota will be required to be licensed and use system tags.

All licensing requirements go into effect on January 1, 2019.

On December 28, 2018, a Ramsey County District Court judge issued an order in an on-going lawsuit filed against the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). That order, in effect, prevents MDH from enforcing certain radon mitigation statutes and rules that were scheduled to become effective on January 1 of 2019. Under the order, MDH for the time being cannot regulate or enforce the statutes and rules that apply to radon mitigation professionals that conduct mitigation in residences. Until further order of the Court, MDH must comply with the order. Other parts of the radon statutes and rules are not affected by the Court’s order. The radon measurement aspects of the statute and rules remain unchanged. If you are conducting radon measurement in a building you do not own or lease, you need to have a radon professional license. For more information, see the statement ‘Radon Licensure Changes due to Temporary Injunction’.
