Indoor Environmental Health Assessment (IEHA) in Educational Facilities Submission Process

Under some circumstances, educational facilities will require an IEHA to be conducted by a licensed consultant when there are renovations, remodeling, additions, conversions, demolitions, etc. taking place.  Educational facilities include any K-12 public, private or charter school.  The Local Construction Official (LCO) will determine if the work being done in the educational facility will require a Department of Health (DOH) Safe building Interior Certification.  A DOH certification may be required prior to the beginning of any construction or demolition or prior to issuing a certificate of occupancy (CO).  If your LCO has required you to obtain a DOH certification, please contact the DOH for more information on how to proceed.

Educational facilities which fall into one or more of the following categories may have to acquire a Safe Building Interior Certification from the DOH:

  • The educational facility is in a building constructed prior to 1979.
  • The prior or current use of the building and/or property was/is used for industrial, storage, or other high hazard purpose. This includes being used as a nail salon, a dry cleaner or a gas station. These categories may be is classified as Groups B, S, F and H as defined by the Uniform Construction Code (UCC).
  • The location is on a contaminated site or on a property where contamination is suspected.
  • The educational facility is referred to the Department of Health (DOH) by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), Department of Education, or a local construction official (LCO), due to a prior or current use of the building or property which is of concern.
  • The educational facility is co-located in a building with a dry cleaner and/or nail salon.
