New Law Protects CHMMs

Glenn Fellman, the IHMM Executive Director, notified our WI CHMM certificants that Senate Bill 132 was signed into law by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker on November 27, 2017.  This law prohibits a person from using the following titles unless the person is certified by IHMM:

  • Certified Hazardous Materials Manager (CHMM)
  • Certified Hazardous Materials Practitioner (CHMP)
  • Certified Dangerous Goods Professional (CDGP)

IHMM and its Public Outreach Committee worked with partner organizations and volunteers across Wisconsin on this legislative initiative.  Boots on the ground support from IHMM certificants, FET and ASSE members was key to getting the law passed.  Thank you to everyone who contacted their local elected officials and who testified in Madison!

Other titles also protected include:

  • Certified Health Physicist (CHP)
  • Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH)
  • Certified Safety Professional (CSP)
  • Registered Radiation Protection Technologist (RRPT)
