Notification Forms

Contractors and/or building owners are required by federal law to notify their local air quality agency 10 working days prior to all demolitions or renovations of buildings that contain asbestos.

The asbestos notification requirement is part of the National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP), as established by the US Environmental Protection Agency.

National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) to protect the public from exposure to airborne contaminants that are known to be hazardous to human health. The Asbestos NESHAP requires:

  • Good work practices to be followed during demolitions and renovations of all structures, installations, and buildings (excluding residential buildings that have four or fewer dwelling units).
  • Notification forms to be sent to the relevant agency by the building owner and/or the contractor 10 working days before all demolitions, or before renovations of buildings that contain a certain threshold amount of asbestos. The EPA has delegated the Air Pollution Control District as their representative agency in Northern Sonoma County.

For more information about the Asbestos NESHAP, please contact the Northern Sonoma County Air Pollution Control District at (707) 433 5911, or visit the EPA's NESHAP website.
