Mold Certifiation Requirements
New York State licensing and training requirements for mold contractors, assessors, and workers took effect on January 1, 2016.
The Mold program will require that assessors, contractors and their workers in the mold remediation industry are properly trained and licensed. The Department of Labor enforces the New York State Labor Law, which will require that a licensed mold assessor perform initial assessment and final inspection work and a separate licensed mold remediation contractor perform the cleanup and removal work.
The law requires the following to ensure the proper remediation of mold:
- Licensing of assessors, contractors and workers
- A written mold remediation plan, prepared by a licensed mold assessment contractor
