    Pages: 35    Published: Jan 2005


    Abstract

    THE PROCESS OF ASSESSING THE CURRENT Condition and Potential for Disturbance of asbestos-containing materials as described in Chapter 3 often leads to a decision to undertake an asbestos abatement project. There are other reasons to abate ACM, which is usually done by removing it. The most common reason is compliance with the NESHAP regulation that effectively mandates abatement of any ACM that might be disturbed during renovation or demolition work. Abatement projects are also undertaken to reduce the building owner 's liability, as part of a financial transaction and for other reasons.
