The independent self-regulatory body for the radon protection industry

Membership

The benefits of Radon Council membership

The Radon Council has two membership grades: Full membership and Contractors List only.

Full members

Full members have the right to attend Radon Council members meetings. At those meetings matters arising that concern the Radon Councils business will be discussed. Members all have an equal say in such matters and have voting rights. One vote per member.

Members will also be consulted on any government initiatives in the radon field and are invited to contribute as interested parties in any government-led consultation documents. Members can contribute to the Radon Councils agenda and guide the Council in its priorities and how best to fulfil those priorities.

In addition, members have the right to raise concerns to the Council about best practice recommendations and the conduct of all the Council’s members. The Council not only exists to raise radon awareness but to also provide a regulatory framework for its members.

Contractors list

Contractors have the right to be listed as contractors on the Council website if they have attended and passed the Radon Council training course.

Being included on the contractors list means that the Council recognises the contractor’s competence to undertake relevant radon work – be that testing, measurement, barrier installation, retro-fit etc.

Contractors do not have voting rights at the members’ meetings and, whilst their thoughts on the future focus of Council business is welcomed, they do not have the right to guide or help set the agenda for future radon initiatives / the direction and focus of the Council.

Full membership recommended

We would always recommend that those on the Contractors List should consider being Full Members. This gives contractors the opportunity to focus the direction of the Council in the future – something that most businesses would find invaluable. It would also place contractors closer to the Council’s working relationships with organisations such as the BRE, the UK Health Security Agency, NHBC etc.
