40 CFR part 763.99(a) and (a)(7)of the asbestos in schools rule provides that an LEA “shall not be required to perform an inspection under § 763.85(a) in any sampling area . . . or homogeneous area of a school building where: . . . (7) An architect or project engineer responsible for the construction of a new school building built after October 12, 1988, or an accredited inspector signs a statement that no asbestos-containing building material (ACBM) was specified as a building material in any construction document for the building, or, to the best of his or her knowledge, no ACBM was used as a building material in the building.”
If the architect or project engineer responsible for the construction of a school building built after October 12, 1988 provides a written statement that there is no asbestos-containing material in the school, is an inspection required?
