AARST Position Statements
The American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists, Inc. (AARST) occasionally develops position statements and papers to advocate for an issue of importance for safe and knowledge-based practice while testing for and reducing radon exposure.
A position statement:
- Describes one side of an arguable viewpoint.
- Provides the background and rationale to support a particular viewpoint.
- Makes the organization’s stand on the viewpoint clear to the audience.
A position paper may accompany a position statement to provide in-depth evidence supporting the viewpoint and stance of our organization. As a standard-writing consensus-based non-profit organization, these recommendations clearly reference background information, and evidence to support the statements which are backed by science research, technological advances and best practices.
