Well, quite frankly*anyone can*. You should use a qualified radon professional. One who has *no conflict of interest* in their testing and remediation activities. Currently, I'm not aware of any laws in Colorado, Colorado Springs or El Paso County in regards to this.

Well, not too many. Colorado has no mandatory Radon Testing or Removal programs in regards to this. I suggest contacting Colorado Department of Public Health CDPHE at 1-800-846-3986 for information and test kits.

As it currently stands anyone can mitigate, test or install systems in Colorado Springs. You should ensure that your radon professional uses appropriate materials and systems that are part of the EPA Protocols at minimum.

What should I do as a Homeowner or home buyer?

Well, first of all, have your home tested. Radon levels are elevated in many areas of Colorado, including the Springs. I suggest only using Radon Mitigation professionals who are familiar with EPA Protocols. A professional should discuss with you a "Plan of Action" if you will.
