The Asbestos Removal Program

If you have questions about asbestos training, licensure or certification, please contact the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation at 850-487-1395.

Asbestos is well-recognized as a health hazard and is highly regulated. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA) asbestos regulations are intertwined in this area.

DEP administers an asbestos removal program under Chapter 62-257, Florida Administrative Code. The program's intent is to prevent the release of asbestos fibers to the outside air during demolition or renovation activities.

The program requires prior notification to DEP on all demolitions (i.e., load bearing structures) and for the removal of asbestos-containing material from all applicable sources meeting or exceeding the thresholds identified in the Asbestos National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants regulations. The Online Asbestos Notification System may be used to submit the notification, but the notification must still be submitted at least 10 working days before the project start date.

If sending this Notice of Demolition or Asbestos Renovation using the following form, it must be postmarked or received at least 10 working days before the project start date.

Often, questions arise concerning compliance with asbestos regulations in Florida. The Asbestos Letters, Determinations and Clarifications webpage provides information to assist in answering these compliance questions. The Asbestos Letters, Determinations and Clarifications page contains memoranda issued by DEP or its agents and EPA on applicability and compliance issues associated with the Asbestos National Emissions Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP, 40 CFR Part 61, Subpart M).
