EPA 340 1-90 018 Asbestos NESHAP Regulated Asbestos-Containing Materials Guidance  


The purpose of this document is to assist asbestos inspectors and the regulated community in determining whether or not a material is a "Regulated Asbestos-Containing Material" (RACM) and thus subject to the Asbestos NESHAP.

This document was written by Alliance Technologies, Inc., based on discussions with a work group from EPA. The group consisted of the Regional Asbestos NESHAP Coordinators, Ron Shafer, Scott Throwe, and Omayra Salgado of the Stationary Source Compliance Division, Charles Garlow and Elise Hoerath of the Air Enforcement Division and Sims Roy of the Standards Development Branch. We thank the individuals who reviewed an earlier draft and provided comments, many of which are incorporated in the final version. Their input is gratefully acknowledged.
