The Asbestos Management and Abatement applies to the demolition, removal, and disposal of regulated asbestos containing material (RACM) and protecting the public by minimizing the release of asbestos fibers during activities involving the processing, handling, and disposal of sbestos-containing material. There are specific work practices to be followed during demolitions and renovations of all structures, installations, and buildings. In addition, the regulations require the owner of the building and/or the contractor to notify applicable state and local agencies and/or EPA Regional Offices before all demolitions, or before renovations of buildings that contain a certain threshold amount of asbestos.
Before undertaking demolition or renovations, Marine Corps installations and activities must follow all applicable Federal, state, or local requirements. Note that some state requirements are more stringent than the Federal regulations (e.g., Asbestos is a HW in California and certain other states, but only a solid waste under Federal regulations).
