ASBESTOS IN POST-1980 BUILDINGS

In any building older than 1980, California OSHA (Title 8 Section 1529) has always required asbestos bulk sampling prior to renovation or demolition. But asbestos continued to be installed in new construction up to around 1989.

More recently, we've found asbestos flooring and roofing materials in buildings constructed as recently as 2002! The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) is clear:

"An asbestos survey is required regardless of building age. If it was built last year and you want to demolish or renovate today, a survey is required. Refer to Rule 1403(d)(1)(A)."
