Illegal Drug Laboratory Property And Certification
Under current law, the department of public health and environment (department) certifies people who assess, decontaminate, or sample property that contained illegal drug laboratories. The bill adds a requirement that the department inspect the work of each certified person at least once every 3 years. If the department determines that a certified person failed to perform an assessment, decontamination, or sampling correctly, the department is directed to require the person to participate in remedial education or, if the failure was willful and is likely to be repeated, the department shall decertify the person.
The bill requires the department to create a public database of buildings that have been used as illegal drug laboratories. A building must be removed from the database 5 years after the property has been decontaminated.
