Is it legal for a real estate licensee to place, move, or drop off a radon testing canister at a laboratory?

No.  The RI Department of Health rules and regulations prohibit a real estate licensee from placing, moving or dropping off a radon canister until he or she is also licensed as a Radon Measurement

Consultant or is also the owner, buyer, or tenant of the property.

 

If an authorized person conducts or assists with a test, this could invalidate the test results.  This could result in the termination of a purchase and sales agreement

or lawsuit between a buyer and seller. See RI  Department of Health Rules and Regulations for Radon Control.   http://www.rules.state.ri.us/rules/released/pdf/doh/doh_144_.pdf
