The independent self-regulatory body for the radon protection industry

Radon Council membership

The benefits of Radon Council membership

Radon Council 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.

Full members that identify as contractors have the right to be listed on the council’s ‘Contractors List’ if a proportion of their staff have attended and passed the council’s ‘Radon Detection and Treatment’ course.


The Radon Council is not responsible for members’ insurances. Therefore, customers should satisfy themselves that appropriate insurances are in place before agreeing contracts.

The benefits for contractors

We recommend that competent contractors should consider membership of The Radon Council. 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 Building Research Establishment (BRE), the UK Health Security Agency, National House Building Council (NHBC) etc.
