Contractors performing friable asbestos removal or encapsulation work in Michigan must provide project notifications indicating the starting/ending dates and other job-related information to the Asbestos Program within a specified time frame. The Asbestos Program requires project notification 10 days prior to any non-emergency asbestos abatement project exceeding 10 linear feet or 15 square feet, or both, of friable asbestos-containing materials. A one-percent (1%) project notification fee must also be included. Emergency asbestos abatement projects require notification by phone, fax, or mail prior to starting the projects. Please call for approval and instructions on what can be considered emergency situations.
In Michigan, the Air Quality Division (AQD) of the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has been delegated to implement the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) program for asbestos. The asbestos NESHAP protects the public and environment by minimizing the release of asbestos fibers during renovation and demolition activities. Advanced notification is required to ensure all precautions are being taken to minimize asbestos emissions. Project notifications may also be required by the DEQ. Please contact DEQ at 517-241-7463 for the NESHAP notification requirements.
