Ground gas verifier membership

Our ground gas verifier category of membership is for professionals who are involved in the independent testing and verification of ground gas protection measures installed by others. Such third party verifiers will assess the nature of the gas protection system, quality of the products used and the competence and quality of the installation to ensure the prevention of harmful ground gases from entering buildings. 

Verifiers will propose appropriate remediation for ground gas protection measures that are found to be faulty, defective or inadequate.
