During the 2008 legislative session, the General Assembly passed The Maryland Mold Remediation Services Act. This law is printed in Title 7 of the Home Improvement Law, contained in the Business Regulation Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland.
This law would have require any company or firm providing mold remediation services on residential property in Maryland to obtain a state license. In addition the law required that each employee who provides mold remediation services must be certified by the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC), or any other nationally recognized accreditation that operates independently of training organizations or industry trade associations.
This law was scheduled to take effect on July 1, 2013. However, due to budget constraints, the state has postponed the implementation of the Maryland Mold Remediation Services Act indefinitely.
