New Acceptable Radon Levels Published by W. H. O.

The World Health Organization has decided that the acceptable level of Radon in a property is now 2.7 pCL/l instead of 4.0 pCL/l. This means that MOST of the US is now a Zone 1. The old Radon map of the US currently shows three zones with Zone 1 indicating possible levels of Radon exceeding the 4.0 range, zone 2 ranges from 2 to 4 pCL/l and Zone 3 are the areas of less than 2.

So the new map, when it is redone, will indicate 2 zones: areas of over 2.7 and all the other areas.

If you want to see a map you can find one here.

Happy listing and selling real estate.

Great information Heath. I will have to keep an eye on this. Looks like I will need to update a lot of material for the radon testing I do.

I wonder if this standard is going to be adopted in the Us and if it will effect our home sales here. Surely a lowering of the rate will mean more homes "fail " this test. Where can one follow this here ? do you KNow?

Do you know if the rules have officially changed in Massachusetts?  I just tried to look and could not find any information on this.  If so, this is going to be a major change.  I have had many test results about 2.7.
