What are the requirements for building renovation and demolition projects?

The greatest potential for exposure to asbestos fibers now occurs when asbestos containing building materials (ACBM) are disturbed during either building renovations or demolition.

Inspections. Federal regulation require that a thorough inspection be conducted for the presence of asbestos containing building materials (ACBM) prior to any demolition or renovation of any facility, except single family homes. The inspection must be conducted by a person accredited in the identification of ACBMs.
