  QUESTION: Lead testing in Melbourne, 19 Jun 2004, Victoria Australia

I live in Melbourne, have 2 young children, and want my house tested for lead. Are there any lead testing kits available here? How can I find a professional lead tester?

ANSWER: 21 Jun 2004

Dear Anna,

The most likely place to find a spot test kit is at Bunnings Hardware or a Dulux or Pascol Paint Trade Centre.

Here are the four companies from our database who do lead assessments in Melbourne:

  1. CTI Consultants Pty Ltd - Victoria 26 Verene Ave Templestowe Lower VIC 3107 0398507407, 0413126753 FAX: 0398507407 EMAIL: Dbartlet WEB: Lead assessors - CTI's Victorian branch. CTI are one of the foremost lead assessors in Australia.
  2. ETRS Pty Ltd 12 Carrington Drv Albion VIC 3020 1800671096, 0393634288, mob 0438437089 FAX: 0393634399
    WEB: ETRS has 20 Australian offices, most of which can undertake lead assessments. ETRS also provide legal advice from certified arbitrators on analysis results. Their Melbourne office has an environmental auditor. All contact should be through the freecall.
  3. MGT Environmental Consulting 3 Kingston Town Close Oakleigh VIC 3166 0395647055 This Melbourne lead assessor can come & collect a sample for lead testing or the householder can send a sample for $12/sample. They'll analyse it & charge a minimum of $25 for writing a report. They do 5,000 samples a week & participate in external quality control & are NATA accredited.
  4. Aadland & Lux Consultants 1 Harker St Alphington VIC 3078 0394974399 Aadland and Lux have been doing lead assessments in Melbourne since 1995.

Good luck.
Yours Sincerely Elizabeth O'Brien
