Regulations for Demolition & Renovation

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Asbestos to minimize the release of fibers during activities involving asbestos handling.

Notification Forms

The Asbestos NESHAP, 40 CFR Part 61, Subpart M, requires written notification of demolition or renovation operations under Section 61.145. The NESHAP Notification form is to be used to notify the EPA of any renovation or demolition project at least ten days prior to the start of work.

This notification should be typewritten and postmarked or delivered no later than 10 days prior to the beginning of the Asbestos removal activity or demolition.
