Florida to Schedule Hearing on Mold Assessors and Remediators Standards and Practices Proposed Rules If Requested; Licensing and Disciplinary Proposed Rule Changes Published

Oct 28, 2013


The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (“DBPR”) issued October 14, 2013 Notices on proposed Rules pertaining to mold-related services licensees under Chapter 468, Part XVI, Florida Statutes.

The law, which became effective in 2011, prohibits individuals and companies from performing mold remediation or mitigation services without carrying a license.  Mold assessors must also be licensed.

The DBPR issued a Notice of Proposed Rule for 61-31.701 and 61-31.702, which relate to minimum standards and practices for mold assessors and remediators.

If requested within 21 days of the Notice, the DBPR will schedule a subsequent hearing.
