Change in Ohio Asbestos Rule

Effective on January 31, 2021, Ohio’s asbestos regulation (Ohio Asbestos rule 3745-22) has been revised. Highlights of the rule include changing of the definition “Asbestos hazard abatement activity” from 50 l/ft. or 50 sq/ft. of friable asbestos to 3 l/ft. or 3sq/ft. of friable ACM. The definition of “Asbestos hazard abatement project” is now 50 l/ft. or 50 sq/ft. of friable ACM.

An “Asbestos hazard abatement project” includes any such activity involving such friable ACM in an amount of 50 l/ft. or 50 sq/ft. or less if, when combined with any other reasonably related activity in terms of time or location of the activity, the total amount is in an amount greater than 50 l/ft. or 50sq/ft.

New PA DEP Notification requirements

Per DEP:

Notice: Effective January 16, 2021, all initial Asbestos Notifications must be accompanied a $300 fee. Initial notifications will not be considered complete unless accompanied by the fee. This fee does not apply to revisions of notifications. The Saturday, January 16, 2021 effective date is the result of a three-year regulatory process and will be finalized upon publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin on that date. This fee will help address the long-term disparity between revenue and expenditures in DEP’s Air Quality Program. Further information can be found here:
