Asbestos Activities

Due to loss of state funding for Georgia's Asbestos Program, the National Emissions Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants-Asbestos Program (NESHAP-Asbestos) was transferred to EPA Region 4 on March 1, 2009. Despite the loss of state funding, the Program continues to license asbestos contractors, approve asbestos supervisor training courses, and process asbestos abatement/demolition project notifications as mandated under the Georgia Asbestos Safety Act. The Program also provides training, technical assistance, and inspections of K-12 schools for compliance with the federal Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA). This activitiy is funded through a small grant from the U.S. EPA.
