Effective Date of Rule: September 8, 2009.

Purpose: Add "moving a facility" to the definition of demolition. Define "facility."

Clarify the section on multiple asbestos projects/demolitions. Require that asbestos removal contractors submit a notification prior to removing ten or more linear feet of ACM, or forty-eight or more square feet of ACM, from an owner-occupied, single-family residence. Add a provision that allows the control officer to temporarily waive notification fees if a state of emergency is declared by an authorized local, state, or federal governmental agency. Clarify what constitutes the last completion date on record for purposes of filing an amendment. Limit the number of structures that can be filed on a single notification to five. Allow nonfriable roofing removal under the exception for hazardous conditions.
