Limited Surveys are performed prior to renovation activities, to ensure any suspect asbestos containing materials are handled safely and correctly. This limited type of survey is performed prior to planned renovations of specific building materials or areas within a structure.
Full Demolition Surveys include the identification of all accessible asbestos containing materials in a property prior to demolition.
Post Abatement Verifications (Clearances) are performed to assess the stated completion of asbestos abatement. This type of assessment takes place after a certified abatement company has completed asbestos abatement of an area to document successful project completion.
Procedure 5 Contamination Assessments occur when asbestos containing building materials have been improperly disturbed or damaged prior to testing. This SCAQMD requirement must document the extent of contamination and the specific work plan protocol to be implemented.
*SCAQMD Rule 1403 Clarifies… “There are no exceptions to this survey requirement based on the date of construction or the age of a facility.” This is because asbestos was never fully banned and continues to be imported from other countries where it is still widely used.
