The independent self-regulatory body for the radon protection industry

European Radon Day

The Radon Council are pleased to support and promote the European Radon Day. Deaths from Radon related lung cancer can be considerably reduced through radon awareness and implementing good practices, for example; testing of properties (homeowners, landlords, and employers) and acting upon the findings.

In private housing, there is not an obligation to test for radon; however, it is increasingly requested by prospective purchasers. Landlords, however, do have a responsibility under the Housing Act 2004 and the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018 to assess the risk of radon in each of their tenanted properties. Furthermore, under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, all employers must assess health and safety risks, and this includes radon. Landlords and employers must carry out radon testing if their property is located within a designated radon affected area and develop an appropriate a risk assessment.
