Frequent Questions

If a non-friable component such as a piece of floor tile is broken into small pieces in a removal process and the resulting pieces still can't be reduced to powder by hand pressure, does EPA require accredited workers?

If floor tiling is removed by a method that does not render it friable (not able, when dry, to be crumbled, pulverized, or reduced to powder by hand pressure) then removal is not considered to be a response action that requires workers accredited under the Asbestos Model Accreditation Plan (MAP).
