Radon Tester Certification (online & free for members)
Although there are no state regulations for radon testing in Texas, the Texas Radiation Control Program recommends that the public hire an NRPP-certified professional (as of December 2014). Visit the Texas website for details.
Under the home inspector license issued by TREC, the inspector MAY NOT comment on whether termite infestations exist. They should comment on visible damage regardless of the underlying cause and note it as a deficiency in their report, but may not assess that the damage was specifically caused by wood-destroying insects.
A person who reports on wood-destroying insects must be licensed by the state as a wood-destroying insect inspector. These licenses are issued by the Texas Structural Pest Control Service of the Texas Department of Agriculture at www.texasagriculture.gov
A home inspector:
must not identify pests in their inspections;
must not write inspection reports that identify pests; and
must not make recommendations in regard to an infestation.
