OPERATING PERMITS (For Stationary Sources)
Asbestos notifications to EPA Region 9 are required for all demolition projects (regardless of whether asbestos is present) and any renovation project that disturbs regulated asbestos-containing materials (RACM) greater than the threshold amounts. "Demolition" is defined in 40 CFR 61 Subpart M as "the wrecking or taking out of any load-supporting structural member of a facility together with any related handling operations or the intentional burning of any facility."
Electronic 10-day Asbestos Notifications to EPA are not permitted – hard copy is required. Please send the 10-day Notification through US Mail to the EPA Asbestos contact below. A copy of the Notification must also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The applicant must demonstrate that the facility has been inspected and the Asbestos-Containing Material (ACM) has been removed before the structure can be demolished. If emergency demolition is needed, the structure can only be demolished with permission from the EPA.
