Yes. 40 CFR part 763.85(a)(4)(iv) explicitly permits homogeneous areas of friable and non-friable suspected asbestos-containing building material (ACBM) to be assumed to be asbestos-containing material (ACM). (See also 40 CFR part 763.86(a), (b), (c), and (d)).
During an inspection, can a local education agency (LEA) just assume that some or all homogeneous areas of friable and nonfriable suspected ACBM are ACM rather than take samples?
