Re: What should be in an IH report?

I'd like to start a new thread by asking for help on a subject that has me stymied.

I've been looking at asbestos and lead paint inspection and some are great and other are appalling. The appalling ones don't identify the sampling equipment and methods, don't identify the data units and standards in their charts, don't tell you where the samples were taken from and when (good ones provide pictures and maps), don't provide copies of chain of custody documents, the contractors certifications and more.

I have crawled all over the net and the AIHA site looking for minimum specifications for data to be reported on these various types of reports. NADA. There MUST be some kinds of minimum standards. I did find one set of Wisconsin state regulations that required some of this information, but that's it.

Can anyone provide a list of what these contractors should be required to provide in their reports?
