Frequent Questions

Does EPA require Asbestos Model Accreditation Plan (MAP) accreditation for asbestos-abatement professionals when conducting “small-scale, short-duration” operations and maintenance activities?

EPA does not require Asbestos Model Accreditation Plan (MAP) accreditation for asbestos-abatement professionals when conducting “small-scale, short-duration” operations and maintenance activities. However, operations and maintenance (O&M) training under the AHERA schools rule (not MAP accreditation) is required for “small-scale, short-duration” activities done in schools. Also, EPA recommends O&M training for small-scale, short-duration projects done in other buildings. In addition, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), state and local requirements may be applicable.
