Radon mitigation options for existing low-rise residential buildings .: P29-149-012-2017E-PDF

"This National Standard of Canada (NSC) addresses system design and installation requirements for radon mitigation in existing low-rise residential buildings. This standard provides diagnostic methods, design and installation instructions, and acceptable materials and product specifications, to maximize the radon reduction capacity of the system. This standard is specific to radon gas emanating from soil gas sources. This standard does not address specific mitigation techniques for radon from other sources. The scope of this NSC may include but is not limited to provision of requirements, specifications, guidelines and characteristics that can be used consistently to ensure that materials, products, processes and services used in the radon mitigation of existing low-rise residential buildings are fit for their purposes"--Scope, p. 1.
