Asbestos NESHAP

Asbestos NESHAP
This Web page is intended to provide information about the EPA Region 1 Clean Air Act Asbestos NESHAP [National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants] Program and to provide guidance and highlight resources regarding compliance with federal Asbestos NESHAP demolition and renovation requirements.

EPA has delegated authority to implement and enforce Asbestos NESHAP requirements under applicable state authority in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. EPA considers proper notification to the delegated state authority to satisfy the federal Asbestos NESHAP requirement. In the non-delegated New England states of Rhode Island and Vermont, however, prior written notification of demolition and renovation operations regulated by the Asbestos NESHAP must be provided to EPA to satisfy federal requirements. For demolition and renovation operations occurring in these two states, accordingly, you are advised to direct any Asbestos NESHAP-related information, questions, or concerns to the contacts listed here.

For demolition and renovation operations occurring in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire you are advised to direct any Asbestos NESHAP-related information, questions, or concerns to the contacts listed below:
