Meth Lab Cleanup Standards, Regulations & Disclosure

With seizure of methamphetamine and home foreclosures both on the rise, it is likely that properties used in meth production will more frequently be placed on the market for sale. Occupancy of a home contaminated with high levels of methamphetamine and/or production chemicals can rapidly lead to severe health complications, especially in young children. Below is a listing of states' clandestine drug lab decontamination regulations, disclosure laws and contaminated property listings (if available). PLEASE NOTE: the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed a clandestine drug lab decontamination guideline; this guideline (not a law) is inconsistent with the best standards and practices established in regulated states.

Click here to link to the Drug Enforcement Administrations (DEA) National Clandestine Drug Lab Registry. This listing contains addresses of some locations where law enforcement agencies reported they found chemicals or other items that indicated the presence of either clandestine drug laboratories or dump-sites. PLEASE NOTE: 75% of all testing and decontamination calls to Meth Lab Cleanup Company are regarding properties that are not on any federal, state or county listing (only a small percentage of drug labs result in law enforcement action). Scroll down to see state specific clandestine drug lab laws.
