Mold Program: Licensing

Important! Please see the temporary rules for license and certification renewals and exam postponements.

It is unlawful for any person to engage, advertise or hold themselves out as a mold assessor, remediation contractor, or abatement worker unless they have a valid mold license, issued by the Commissioner, for the type of work they will be performing. Individuals who do so may be subject to a civil penalty.

Applications for mold-related licenses can be found on the Department's Safety and Health Documents and Publications page. For questions regarding mold-related licenses, please contact:

  • NYS Department of Labor
  • License and Certificate Unit
  • Building 12 - Room 161A
  • State Office Campus, Albany, New York 12240

The Department will not be sending renewal reminders to mold licensees. Licensees are responsible for keeping track of their license expiration date and renewing their license accordingly. Applications for mold-related licenses and renewal can be found on the Department's Safety and Health Documents and Publications page.
