Asbestos Letters, Determinations and Clarifications
Often, questions arise concerning compliance with the asbestos regulations in Florida. This webpage provides information to assist in answering these compliance questions and contains memoranda issued by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) or its agents and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on applicability and compliance issues associated with the Asbestos National Emissions Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutant (NESHAP, 40 CFR Part 61, Subpart M).
For CPM that is emitted from an emissions unit but not subject to any numerical emission limiting standards, AOR pollutant annual emissions must be reported for CPM, for each SCC, if CPM was emitted from the emissions unit during the reporting year in an amount, by SCC, equal to or greater than 5.0 tons/year and if information is available to estimate emissions. If such information is not available, CPM should not be listed as a reportable pollutant on the form.
For a spreadsheet to automatically calculate the annual emissions (tons/year), enter the appropriate fuel/process information in the cells in the upper left-hand corner of the spreadsheet. (EU No. is optional.)
