Negative pressure testing - Mould


I am hoping someone can help me with this. I am curious if anyone knows if DOP testing: A testing method employing dioctyl phthalate aerosol for purpose of leak-testing negative air units is used during mould remediation/abatement is in a facillity. I was hoping I can find it in a reputable mould guideline. Example: Health Canada, CCA Mould Guidelines, New York Mould Guidelines, Manitoba Mould Guidelines, CSA standards for infection control, etc.

I have tried to look in the previously mentioned, but found nowhere stating that during remediation, the negative pressure unit should be TESTED to ensure proper operation.

Can someone please help me find where it states that the negative pressure air units should be tested using a (blank) method, during mould remediation.
