How the US EPA Regulates Asbestos
- Mesothelioma; a rare cancer that affects the lining of the lungs, chest cavity, or abdomen
- Lung cancer that may develop 20 to 50 years after exposure
- Pleural plaques; changes in the membranes surrounding the lungs
- Pleural effusions; abnormal collections of fluid between the lungs and the inside wall of the chest
- 40 CFR 61, Subpart M includes monitoring, control, and reporting requirements for various activities that could emit friable asbestos to the ambient air (that is, the air outside of buildings), including the act of demolishing/renovating an existing structure which has asbestos-containing material (ACM). The rules for controlling asbestos emissions from demolition/renovation activities are found at 40 CFR 61.145
- In schools (40 CFR 763, Subpart E): identifying asbestos-containing material, sampling, and managing in a timely fashion
- In non-OSHA asbestos abatement projects (40 CFR 763, Subpart G): protecting state and local government employees who are not currently protected by OSHA’s asbestos standards
- In certain products (40 CFR 763, Subpart I): prohibiting the manufacture, importation, processing, distribution, and labeling of certain asbestos-containing products
