How to Use the Qualified Inspectors List

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

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (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 geographical area each inspector operates within, and the services each provides.

Duties of a Qualified Inspector

  • Review the Indiana State Police Clandestine Laboratory Occurrence Report.
  • If no Report exists, consult with the law enforcement agency that terminated the lab and local health department [PDF] to determine the types of chemicals used, types and location(s) of the labs, and whether other areas were impacted, i.e., outside, detached garage or shed, or vehicle.
  • Conduct initial assessment to determine the (a) types and levels of chemicals used and (b) scope and extent of contamination both inside and outside the affected property.
  • Complete initial testing if property will not be demolished.
  • Provide notification of the date that decontamination will be conducted, in writing, to the local health department, the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) via email at eph@isdh.in.gov, and IDEM via email at druglabcleanup@idem.in.gov.
  • Supervise and/or conduct 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 and final test to confirm property meets < 0.5 µg/100 cm2.
  • Complete the Qualified Inspector Certificate of Illegal Drug Lab Cleanup (also known as certificate of decontamination).
  • Dispose or arrange for disposal of wastes in accordance with 329 IAC 3.1 (hazardous wastes), 327 IAC 7.1. (septic system or wastewater), and 329 IAC 10 (all other wastes).
  • Provide the certificate of decontamination and supporting documentation to the owner, local health department, ISDH via email at eph@isdh.in.gov, and IDEM via email at druglabcleanup@idem.in.gov.

Note: Should either the property owner conduct a demotion or the Qualified Inspector supervise a demolition, the Notification of Demolition for Drug Lab Cleanup (available on the IDEM Forms page)should be used to document the demolition and then emailed to the local health department, ISDH via email at eph@isdh.in.gov, and IDEM via email at druglabcleanup@idem.in.gov along with all required documentation.

How to Become a Qualified Inspector & Be Placed on the Qualified Inspector List

Each qualified inspector must complete and provide documentation of all of the following:

  • At least forty (40) hours of experience cleaning illegal drug labs, or similar work, such as emergency response operations, cleanup or remediation operations, corrective actions, or operations involving hazardous wastes that are regulated under the regulations of the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) at 29 CFR 1910.120. Documentation may include timesheets, reports, letters from employers, or notarized affidavits 40 hours of experience.
  • Training for supervisors required by 29 CFR 1910.120(e) (Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response). This training must include 40 hours of training for general site workers and an additional 8 hours of specialized supervisor training. Documentation must include Training certificates signed by the instructor showing completion of the required OSHA training.
  • Training on cleanup of contaminated property provided by IDEM and passing an examination on illegal drug lab cleanup with a score of at least eighty percent (80%).

    • Errors and omissions insurance in the amount of at least one million dollars ($1,000,000) per occurrence.
    • Pollution prevention insurance in the amount of at least three million dollars ($3,000,000).
