Contractors Authorized to Remediate Sites Contaminated by Meth Labs.
An authorized contractor must meet specific criteria:
- The approved remediation plan must be implemented by a licensed contractor holding the Hazardous Substance Removal Certification (HAZ), as issued by the Contractors State License Board.
- All personnel working on the remediation of the contaminated site must meet the training and medical surveillance requirements of the Cal/OSHA Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard. These requirements can be found in Title 8, Section 5192 of the California Code of Regulations.
