Frequent Questions

Do the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requirements in 40 CFR part 763 mandating routine facility inspections and management plan development apply to for-profit private schools as they apply in public K-12 schools?

AHERA requirements for facility inspections and management plan development do not apply to for-profit private schools, but they do apply to non-profit private K-12 schools.  This exemption for private for-profit schools was directly mandated in the enabling legislation (the AHERA statute).
