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.

We recommend 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.

Documentation may include timesheets, reports or letters from employers showing 40 hours of experience.
  • Training for supervisors required by 29 CFR 1910.120(e) (Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response).
