On June 9, 2023, Governor Ron DeSantis signed HB 869, reducing barriers for entry into the Mold Related Services (MRS) profession. Effective July 1, 2023 there is a new category of Mold Related Services Licensure by Endorsement.
The Bill allows applicants who have held a license for at least 10 years in another state(s) or territory to be approved for licensure in Florida. However, such applicants must apply while they hold a valid license in other state(s) or within two years after the expiration of such license.
On October 8, 2019, the fee for Continuing Education Providers for Mold Related Services and the renewal of that license, was reduced by 50% (from $250.00 to $125.00). The Department of Business and Professional Regulation made this change as part of the “Florida Deregathon”, which took place January 2019. The Deregathon identified unnecessary regulations that creates harmful and costly burdens on businesses.
The Department of Business and Professional Regulation is excited to announce an advancement in how we license mold assessors and mold remediators in the State of Florida.
The Department has implemented an innovative way to expedite the licensing process for mold assessors and mold remediators. The Department will no longer be mailing licenses upon issuance, as licensees can now print their licenses by logging into their secure online account with the Department. This will allow new licensees to enter the work force at least 7 to 10 business days early, whereas, in the past, they would have to wait for the license to arrive in the mail. In addition to new licenses, this process will allow licensees to renew online and print the license at their convenience.
All requests for publications, documents, forms, applications for licenses, permits and other similar certifications can be obtained by contacting the Customer Contact Center.
