Frequent Questions

Do accreditation requirements under the Asbestos Model Accreditation Plan (MAP) apply to persons removing nonfriable asbestos-containing material from schools?

No, unless the nonfriable material becomes friable in the removal process.  Generally, if a removal action involves nonfriable materials and the work methods used in removal of the nonfriable material will not cause it to become friable by the material crumbling, becoming pulverized or to be reduced to powder by hand pressure, then the use of MAP-accredited workers is not required.
