Experienced Licensed Asbestos Investigators, Inspectors, Designers, Management Planners and Project Monitors


New York City adopted specific standards, procedures and licensing for asbestos work pursuant to the Department of Environmental Protection’s Asbestos Control Program Rules and Regulations (Title 15, Chapter 1). These regulations require any entity involved in asbestos abatement projects (contractors or monitors) to create an account with the NYC Department of Environmental Protection’s Asbestos Reporting and Tracking System. This electronic system is accessible through the DEP’s website for filing notifications, requesting variances, submitting amendments and closing out projects. This site is linked to the Department of Buildings and project monitors must complete the project closeout process before any application for a construction permit will be reviewed.

Asbestos Investigator - These certified professionals identify the presence, quantity, location, and evaluate the condition of all ACM/PACM in a building or portion of a building before any permittable construction activity. This investigator is required to submit either an ACP5 form to the DEP indicating the site is asbestos free or an ACP7 form identifying the amount of ACM that will be impacted by the proposed alteration, renovation or demolition work.


Asbestos abatement in the State of New York are regulated by the Department of Labor under Industrial Code Rule 56. Certification and training of individuals who work in the asbestos industry are also regulated by the Department of Labor. Building Owners are required to utilize certified inspectors employed by licensed contractors to determine whether any building or structure or portions thereof to be demolished, renovated, remodeled, or have repair work, contains ACM/PACM or asbestos material. Any such material identified must be properly abated in advance of scheduled construction activity and the abatement and monitoring must be conducted by certified individuals employed by licensed contractors in accordance with ICR56.
