Requirements:
There are four situations where MDH must be notified of an asbestos project:
 
1. Single project: If your project at a facility meets the following three requirements, then your project is notifiable:
 
  1. the material being removed, enclosed or encapsulated is greater than 1% asbestos; and
  2. the material is friable; and
  3. the quantity of material exceeds:
  • 260 linear feet on pipes; or
  • 160 square feet on other components; or
  • 35 cubic feet if linear or square feet can't be determined
2. Series of small projects: A series of small related or unrelated projects at a facility conducted in a calendar year may be regulated by MDH. If the total quantity of material being worked on exceeds 260 linear feet, 160 square feet or 35 cubic feet, then those series of small projects are regulated by MDH. Those projects are regulated by MDH from the start of the projects, not when the quantities have been surpassed.
 
3. Maintenance projects: Scheduled maintenance projects at a facility conducted in a calendar year may be regulated by MDH. If the total amount of material being worked on exceeds 260 linear feet, 160 square feet or 35 cubic feet, that maintenance activity is regulated by MDH, from the start of the projects.
 
4. Residential projects: If your project is in a single family or a multi-family residence and meets the following three requirements, then your project is notifiable*:
 
  1. the material being removed, enclosed or encapsulated is greater than 1% asbestos; and
  2. the material is friable; and
  3. the material is being worked on exceeds:
  • 10 linear feet on pipes; or
  • 6 square feet on other components; or
  • 1 cubic foot if linear or square feet can't be determined
* - Flooring, roofing, siding and ceiling materials are excluded from notification in single family residences and buildings with four dwelling units or less.
