Meth Lab Remediation law AB1489 passed in 2009 has changed existing methamphetamine remediation standards. Prior to AB1489, the legislature enacted SB536 in 2005 which had very strict remediation standards. The previous standard SB536 did not allow a unit to be rented after the space was used as a meth lab prior to very exact remediation standards being satisfied.

The law now allows 1.5 micrograms per 100 square centimeters of residual contamination in comparison to 2005's standard of 0.1 micrograms per 100 square centimeters. This was done with the property manager/owner in mind by making it easier for a unit to be cleaned up and be rented out.
