Frequent Questions

Who is responsible for ensuring that a project has been reviewed by a project designer in order to ensure compliance with the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA)?

AHERA response actions are required to be designed, not reviewed, by accredited persons.  The local education agency (LEA) and its “designated person” under 40 CFR part 763.84(g) have the responsibility to ensure that AHERA requirements are carried out.  For asbestos work in public and commercial buildings, it is any contractor who employs individuals to conduct the response action.
