Tennessee Radon Program

The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) operates a statewide indoor Radon Program as part of the Office of Policy and Sustainable Practices. We offer a myriad of services and assistance, including test kits for homeowners, technical information for universities, and specific materials for targeted audiences, such as real estate professionals, home builders, building codes officials, home inspectors, and school officials.

What is Radon?

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas. It is released during the natural decay of uranium, which is found in most rock and soil. Radon is odorless, invisible, and without taste. 

For information regarding radon certifications, events, and policy/standards, visit the National Radon Proficiency Program or National Radon Safety Board website.
