Asbestos NESHAP

Generally, EPA and/or the appropriate state agency must be notified of any demolition or renovation project involving asbestos removal at least ten (10) working days prior to the beginning of the project.

In Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, the owner or operator of demolition or renovation project is allowed to file an asbestos notification only with the state (i.e., sending a separate notification form to EPA is not necessary).

In Rhode Island and Vermont, the owner or operator of such a project must file both an EPA Notification Form (PDF) (2 pp, 93 K, about PDF, This PDF is Form-Fillable.) AND a state notification form.

The completed notification forms for activities in Rhode Island and Vermont only may be submitted by mail, hand or commercial delivery to EPA. Faxes are NOT acceptable.

The mailing address for the EPA Notification Form is:
