Revision of E2356-18 Standard Practice for Comprehensive Building Asbestos Surveys

Rationale

This work item has been opened to allow members to suggest updates and/or revisions to this well established standard practice. This standard practice addresses asbestos surveys in the built environment to meet EPA and OSHA regulatory requirements. The EPA has given an approval for the use of the of the E2356 Pre-construction Survey ( Section 8) to meet asbestos NESHAP requirements for a "thorough inspection" (survey) [40 CFR Part 61.145] prior to regulated demotion or renovation activities. Letter can be provided upon request. In addition, the OSHA asbestos construction standard [29 CFR 1926.1101] web page [ https://www.osha.gov/asbestos/construction ] references the use of E2356 as a national consensus standard. This standard practice has no bearing on any sector of the asbestos control issues outside of primarily describing asbestos surveys in buildings and structures. It has no bearing on mineral resources or the aggregate industry. Please support this update to continue this standard practice in service to the asbestos control community.
