Radon Division

The Commonwealth has temporarily closed all offices due to the COVID-19 virus. As such there may be delays in processing your invoices, registrations, and certifications. Please continue to submit all required paperwork before your expiration occurs. The Department will note these as being timely filed and your current radioactive materials license, accelerator license, radiation-producing machine registration, or radon certification will remain in effect until we are able to issue your new document.

The Radon Division helps to ensure public health and safety by increasing public and professional awareness of radon and its health risks within the Commonwealth.

The division administers a certification program for radon testing, mitigation and laboratory analysis individuals and firms.

The division provides an extensive amount of expert information to the general public on all matters related to radon. Also, assistance is provided to homeowners, builders and institutions for the monitoring and mitigation of radon.

Pennsylvania has one of the most serious radon problems in the country. An estimated 40 percent of Pennsylvania homes have radon levels above Environmental Protection Agency's action guideline of 4 picocuries per liter.
