Asbestos NESHAP Regulations

The Asbestos NESHAP regulations require all facility owners or demolition contractors to submit an "Asbestos Abatement and Demolition/Renovation Form" to the Pennsylvania DEP and the United States Environmental Protection Agency at least 10 working days before the onset of demolition. All buildings must be thoroughly inspected for asbestos containing materials prior to any demolition or renovation. The only exception to this is when the demolition is one single-family dwelling that is not part of a larger project such as a commercial or condominium development.
