How to Use the Qualified Inspectors List

Each inspector on the list has met all the requirements to be a qualified inspector.

IDEM does not:

  • endorse any specific company or inspector.
  • regulate or control fees for cleanup and inspection services.

IDEM recommends getting estimates from more than one inspector before signing a contract. Pay attention to the geographic area each inspector operates in, and the services each inspector provides.

Duties of a Qualified Inspector

  • Review the ISP Lab Occurrence Report.
  • If no ISP Report, consult with the law enforcement agency that terminated the lab and local health department to determine the types of chemicals used.
  • Conduct initial assessment, using Method 8270C or equivalent method or practice to determine the types and levels of chemicals used and the scope and extent of contamination for the entire structure, HVAC within the structure, areas outside the structure, and the sewage disposal system.
  • Notify, in writing, the local health department, the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH), and IDEM, the date decontamination will be conducted.
  • Supervise decontamination, including septic system and or sewage disposal system.
  • Notify person who pumps septic system of possible hazards.
  • Inspect the property when decontamination is complete or if the initial assessment indicates decontamination is not required.
  • Complete the Certificate of Illegal Drug Lab Cleanup and send it to the local health department, the State Department of Health, the IDEM, and the owner.
  • Dispose or arrange for disposal of wastes in accordance with 329 IAC 3.1(hazardous wastes), 327 IAC 7.1 (septic system wastewater), and 329 IAC 10 (all other wastes).
