How to arrange testing of your property
Testing of the property should be carried out by contractors who are:
- experienced to perform hazardous tasks.
To find meth testing contractors, check the Yellow Pages or search on the Internet.
The Ministry of Health (MoH) advises that professionals who assess and test a property must operate independently of commercial decontamination (remediation) companies.
If the contamination level is more than 15ug/100cm2
If contamination levels are more than 15ug/100cm2, or if methamphetamine was manufactured on the property, we ask you to carry out remediation to decontaminate your property, as set out in the NZ Standard for testing and decontamination of methamphetamine-contaminated properties.
The standard requires that you vacate and decontaminate the property. If you have tenants you need to make sure they leave the property.
