8:45 a.m. Update on Asbestos Issues During Construction

Presenter: Kary S. Amin, President, Nova Environmental, Inc. 

Description: General information on the asbestos-in-construction industry. Discussion will focus on a recently released EPA letter that clarifies requirements to conduct asbestos inspections and testing on components that will undergo renovation and/or demolition, EVEN ON NEWER BUILDINGS. Many facility representatives believe that buildings constructed after the early 1980's are not subject to the various asbestos inspection requirements. However, the EPA has recently clarified that, regardless of the age of the building, if planning renovation and/or demolition, those impacted components must be tested for asbestos, regardless of asbestos-free documentation they may have.
