Regulation Concerning Licensed Asbestos Contractor Notification, Asbestos Project Permits, and Permit Fees [16 VAC 25 ‑ 20]
This action is exempt from the executive branch review process.
Action:
Regulation Concerning Licensed Asbestos Contractor Notification, Asbestos Project Permits, and Permit Fees
 
General Information
Action Summary The Virginia Occupational Safety and Health (VOSH) Program is amending the final regulation concerning Licensed Asbestos Contractor Notification, Asbestos Project Permits, and Permit Fees to correct longstanding regulatory oversight errors as well as to eliminate confusion on the part of asbestos contractors who must be licensed by the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR) but must file asbestos project permits with the Department of Labor and Industry. VOSH is deleting the single word, “material”, in the definition of “Asbestos project” and related subject-verb agreement which is included in the Definitions subsection, 16 VAC 25-20-10. The current DPOR Asbestos Licensing Regulations only exempt “nonfriable roofing, flooring and siding materials which, when installed encapsulated or removed do not become friable.” Deletion of the extraneous word “material” in the definition of “asbestos project” prior to the term “roofing, and correction of the related verb plurality would correct the error and iterate that roofing, flooring and siding are the only non-friable materials which do not become friable when installed, removed, etc., that are not regulated by DOLI’s Notification regulations.
