    Managing asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) requires finding out if there are any to be managed in a building or facility; obtaining that information is the subject of ASTM E2356 Standard Practice for Comprehensive Building Asbestos Surveys. The standard is comprehensive because it tells how to get the information needed to manage ACMs, whether they are left in place or taken out. Assessment of ACMs is the part of a survey that Appendix X2 of ASTM E2356 covers and Chapter 4 of this manual explains in detail. Throughout this manual, the phrase “building or facility” will frequently be used because not all ACMs are within a structure identifiable as a building and many facilities consist of more than one building.
