An asbestos survey is required prior to the start of any renovation or demolition project in order to determine the presence of asbestos-containing materials - Rule 1403: Demolition and Renovation Activities
The SCAQMD is the governmental agency in Los Angeles, Riverside, Orange, and San Bernardino Counties, that enforces United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) asbestos regulations.
The owner or operator of any demolition or renovation activity shall comply with the following SCAQMD Rule 1403 requirements:
(A) Facility Survey
(i) The affected facility or facility components shall be thoroughly surveyed for the presence of asbestos prior to any demolition or renovation activity. The survey shall include the inspection, identification, and quantification of all friable, and Class I and Class II non-friable asbestos containing material, and any physical sampling of materials.
SCAQMD Rule 1403 establishes notification and work practice requirements to limit asbestos emissions from building demolition and renovation activities. California law requires that a copy of the asbestos demolition/renovation notification form be provided to your local city permitting department prior to the issuance of a demolition/renovation permit. Local governments are responsible for the asbestos notification process.
