(Engineering Division or other organization in the
District Office); "AO" for Area Office; "RO" for
Resident Office; and "PO" for Project Office. Codes
following the "G" typically are not used for Navy,
Air Force, and NASA projects.
An "S" following a submittal item indicates that the
submittal is required for the Sustainability
Notebook to fulfill federally mandated sustainable
requirements in accordance with Section 01 33 29
SUSTAINABILITY REPORTING.
Choose the first bracketed item for Navy, Air Force
and NASA projects, or choose the second bracketed
item for Army projects.
**************************************************************************
Government approval is required for submittals with a "G" designation;
submittals not having a "G" designation are for [Contractor Quality Control
approval.] [information only. When used, a designation following the "G"
designation identifies the office that will review the submittal for the
Government.] Submittals with an "S" are for inclusion in the

TRAINING PROGRAM
**************************************************************************
NOTE: The USEPA asbestos training requirements have
been delegated to USEPA agreement states. Some
states have adopted more stringent training
requirements. Edit this paragraph in accordance
with the most stringent requirement. Remove
subparagraphs that do not apply.
EPA Model Accreditation Plan (MAP) training at 40
CFR 763, should be specified for OSHA Class I
operations; for OSHA Class II asbestos operations
where there will be more than one Class II material
to be abated; or where there is only one Class II
material to be abated but still required by the
state where the work will be conducted.
The designer will specify the OSHA training
requirements for Class II operations (where there is
only one Class II material to be abated and the
state where the work is to be conducted does not
require the EPA MAP training indicated above, or the
abatement only involves roofing materials) , Class
III, or Class IV operations.
**************************************************************************
Establish and submit a training program as specified by EPA MAP, training

deteriorated and unlikely to be removed intact, removal shall be undertaken
within a glovebag. Any scraping to remove residue shall be performed wet.
3.6.8
Specific Control Methods for Class III Work
**************************************************************************
NOTE: Repair and maintenance is considered Class
III work if it involves less than 1 glovebag of
material, regardless of the time it takes to do the
job. If the job involves more than 1 glovebag of
TSI or surfacing material then it is a class I job.
If the job involves more than 1 bag of other ACM
then it is a Class II job.
Taking bulk samples during an asbestos survey is a
Class III operation, and, as in all class III
operations, a respirator is required when there is
no negative exposure assessment.
**************************************************************************
Class III asbestos work shall be conducted using engineering and work
practice controls which minimize the exposure to employees performing the
asbestos work. The work shall be performed using wet methods and, to the
extent feasible, using local exhaust. Use impermeable drop cloths and
shall isolate the operation, using mini-enclosures or glovebag systems,
where the disturbance involves drilling, cutting, abrading, sanding,
chipping, breaking, or sawing of TSI or surfacing material.
3.6.9
Specific Control Methods for Class IV Work

EXECUTION
GENERAL REQUIREMENTS
**************************************************************************
NOTE: EPA NESHAP at 40 CFR 61, Subpart M and OSHA
29 CFR 1926.1101(g)(1)(ii) require adequately wet
removal procedures. There are two exceptions to
this policy allowing dry removal; they are specified
in the EPA 340/1-90/019 NESHAP guidance handbook.
In most cases, use wet removal procedures because it
is the preferred method and the least hazardous.
Dry removal is an option that should be used only
where wet removal may damage adjacent areas or
equipment, or where safety hazards are identified.
If dry removal alone is allowed, carefully edit the
specification to remove references to amended water
and wetting down procedures and to include a
requirement for a written variance submitted by the
Contractor, along with the written approval of any
regulatory authority having jurisdiction, to the CO
for review.
Requirements for abatement of asbestos outdoors
varies considerably with the work and the location
involved. Specify minimum requirements for
abatement of asbestos outdoors where construction of
a containment is not practical. The designer will
provide the best suited, specific requirements
necessary for the particular project to prohibit or
reduce asbestos exposure to other Contractor
employees, customer resources and the general public.
**************************************************************************
Asbestos abatement work tasks shall be performed [as shown on the detailed
SECTION 02 82 13.00 10
Page 33
plans and drawings,] as summarized in Table 1. Use the engineering
controls and work practices required in 29 CFR 1926.1101(g) in all
operations regardless of the levels of exposure. Personnel shall wear and
utilize protective clothing and equipment. Do not permit eating, smoking,
drinking, chewing or applying cosmetics in the regulated area. Personnel
of other trades, shall not be exposed at any time to airborne
concentrations of asbestos unless all the administrative and personal
protective provisions of the Contractor's APP are complied with. Power to
the regulated area shall be locked-out and tagged in accordance with
29 CFR 1910.147, and temporary electrical service with ground fault circuit
interrupters shall be provided as needed. Temporary electrical service
shall be disconnected when necessary for wet removal. Stop abatement work
in the regulated area immediately when the airborne total fiber
concentration: (1) equals or exceeds 0.01 f/cc, or the pre-abatement
concentration, whichever is greater, outside the regulated area; or (2)
equals or exceeds 1.0 f/cc inside the regulated area. Correct the
condition to the satisfaction of the CO, including visual inspection and
air sampling. Work shall resume only upon notification by the CO.
Corrective actions shall be documented.
3.2
PROTECTION OF ADJACENT WORK OR AREAS TO REMAIN
Perform asbestos abatement without damage to or contamination of adjacent
work or area. Where such work or area is damaged or contaminated, it shall
be restored to its original condition or decontaminated at no expense to
the Government. When spills occur, work shall stop in all effected areas
immediately and the spill shall be cleaned. When satisfactory visual
inspection and air sampling analysis results are obtained and have been
evaluated by the Contractor's Designated IH and the CO, work shall proceed.
3.3
OBJECTS
**************************************************************************
NOTE: When the Government will remove objects,
furniture and equipment, there are no Contractor
requirements; therefore, select the first bracketed
sentence. If the Contractor is to remove or protect
objects and furnishings, complete DETAIL SHEET 27,
and include appropriate bracketed sentences and
paragraphs. Remove subparagraphs that do not apply.

practices for roofing materials which are conducted
in accordance with 29 CFR 1926.1101(g)(8)(ii). See
RESPONSE ACTION DETAIL SHEETS 74 or 75 for roofing
practices.
**************************************************************************
The specific abatement techniques and items identified shall be detailed in
the Contractor's AHAP. Use the following engineering controls and work
practices in all operations, regardless of the levels of exposure:
SECTION 02 82 13.00 10
Page 35
a.
Vacuum cleaners equipped with HEPA filters.
b.
Wet methods or wetting agents except where it can be demonstrated that

a.
Local exhaust ventilation equipped with HEPA filter;
b.
Enclosure or isolation of processes producing asbestos dust;
c.
Where the feasible engineering and work practice controls are not
sufficient to reduce employee exposure to or below the PELs, use them
to reduce employee exposure to the lowest levels attainable and shall
supplement them by the use of respiratory protection.
3.6.3
Unacceptable Practices
The following work practices shall not be used:
a.
High-speed abrasive disc saws that are not equipped with point of cut
ventilator or enclosures with HEPA filtered exhaust air.
b.
Compressed air used to remove asbestos containing materials, unless the
compressed air is used in conjunction with an enclosed ventilation
system designed to capture the dust cloud created by the compressed air.
c.
Dry sweeping, shoveling, or other dry clean up.
d.
Employee rotation as a means of reducing employee exposure to asbestos.
3.6.4
Class I Work Procedures
**************************************************************************
Note: OSHA believes that most outdoor Class I work
may be safely done without enclosures (ref. OSHA
Instruction CPL 2-2.63, change 1, dated 9 January
1996); that is, OSHA does not require enclosures.
An exposure assessment must be made prior to outdoor
work to determine other required controls. Remove
this paragraph when not required in the project.
**************************************************************************
In addition to requirements of paragraphs Mandated Practices and Control
Methods, the following engineering controls and work practices shall be
used:
a.
A Competent Person shall supervise the installation and operation of
the control methods.
SECTION 02 82 13.00 10
Page 36
b.

double layer of plastic or air-tight rigid covers.
d. Impermeable dropcloths (0.15 mm 6 mil or greater thickness) shall be
placed on surfaces beneath all removal activity.
e.
Where a negative exposure assessment has not been provided or where
exposure monitoring shows the PEL was exceeded, the regulated area
shall be ventilated with a HEPA unit and employees must use PPE.
3.6.5
Specific Control Methods for Class I Work
**************************************************************************
NOTE: Remove these paragraph and/or subparagraphs
when not required in the project.
**************************************************************************
3.6.5.1
Negative Pressure Enclosure (NPE) System
**************************************************************************
NOTE: Before specifying a negative pressure
enclosure system, the designer should determine if
an enclosure system is feasible. The enclosure
should be the minimum area to encompass all the
working surfaces yet allow unencumbered movement by
the workers, provide unrestricted air flow past the
workers, and ensure walking surfaces can be kept
free of tripping hazards.
**************************************************************************
The NPE system shall be as shown in SETUP DETAIL SHEET [2] [3] [4] [8].
The system shall provide at least 4 air changes per hour inside the
containment. The local exhaust unit equipment shall be operated 24 hours
per day until the containment is removed. The NPE shall be smoke tested
for leaks at the beginning of each shift and be sufficient to maintain a
minimum pressure differential of minus 0.5 mm 0.02 inch of water column
relative to adjacent, unsealed areas. Pressure differential shall be
monitored continuously, 24 hours per day, with an automatic manometric
recording instrument and Records shall be provided daily on the same day
collected to the CO. The CO shall be notified immediately if the pressure
differential falls below the prescribed minimum. The building ventilation
system shall not be used as the local exhaust system for the regulated
area. The NPE shall terminate outdoors unless an alternate arrangement is
allowed by the CO. All filters used shall be new at the beginning of the
project and shall be periodically changed as necessary and disposed of as
ACM waste.
3.6.5.2
Glovebag Systems
Glovebag systems shall be as shown in SETUP DETAIL SHEET 10. Glovebags
shall be used without modification, smoke-tested for leaks, and completely
cover the circumference of pipe or other structures where the work is to be
done. Glovebags shall be used only once and shall not be moved. Glovebags
shall not be used on surfaces that have temperatures exceeding 66 degrees C
SECTION 02 82 13.00 10
Page 37
150 degrees F. Prior to disposal, glovebags shall be collapsed using a
HEPA vacuum. Before beginning the operation, loose and friable material
adjacent to the glovebag operation shall be wrapped and sealed in 2 layers
of plastic or otherwise rendered intact. At least 2 persons shall perform
glovebag removal. Asbestos regulated work areas shall be established as
shown on [detailed drawings and plans] [Table 1] for glovebag abatement.
Designated boundary limits for the asbestos work shall be established with
rope or other continuous barriers and all other requirements for asbestos
control areas shall be maintained, including area signage and boundary
warning tape as specified in SET-UP DETAIL SHEET 11.
a.
Attach HEPA vacuum systems to the bag to prevent collapse during
removal of ACM.
b.
The negative pressure glove boxes shall be fitted with gloved apertures
and a bagging outlet and constructed with rigid sides from metal or
other material which can withstand the weight of the ACM and water used
during removal. A negative pressure shall be created in the system
using a HEPA filtration system. The box shall be smoke tested for
leaks prior to each use.
3.6.5.3
Mini-Enclosures
[Single bulkhead containment] [Double bulkhead containment] [or]
[Mini-containment (small walk-in enclosure)] as shown in SETUP DETAIL SHEET
[5] [6] [7] to accommodate no more than 2 persons, may be used if the
disturbance or removal can be completely contained by the enclosure. The
mini-enclosure shall be inspected for leaks and smoke tested before each
use. Air movement shall be directed away from the employee's breathing
zone within the mini-enclosure.
3.6.5.4
Wrap and Cut Operation
**************************************************************************
Note: When pipes are insulated with ACM, removal of
the entire pipe may be more protective, easier, and
more cost-effective than stripping the asbestos
insulation from the pipe. The wrap and cut
procedure consists of 2 distinct operations. The
wrap portion requires the removal of small amounts
of asbestos from either side of the pipe to be cut;
this will be a Class I or III operation depending on
the amount of asbestos removed. Once the asbestos
is removed and wrapped, the pipe is then cut. OSHA
considers the cutting portion of the job as
unclassified, as it does not involve asbestos
removal. If the wrap and cut operation is conducted
in a negative pressure enclosure system, the
glovebag step is not required, although recommended.
**************************************************************************
Wrap and cut operations shall be as shown in SETUP DETAIL SHEET [9B] [10].
Prior to cutting pipe, the asbestos-containing insulation shall be wrapped
with polyethylene and securely sealed with duct tape to prevent asbestos
becoming airborne as a result of the cutting process. The following steps
shall be taken: install glovebag, strip back sections to be cut 150 mm 6
inches from point of cut, and cut pipe into manageable sections.
SECTION 02 82 13.00 10
Page 38
3.6.6
Class II Work
**************************************************************************
NOTE: Class II work may also be performed using a
method allowed for Class I work, except that
glovebags and glove boxes are allowed if they fully
enclose the Class II material to be removed. Remove
this paragraph when not required in the project.
**************************************************************************
In addition to the requirements of paragraphs Mandated Practices and
Control Methods, the following engineering controls and work practices
shall be used:
a.
A Competent Person shall supervise the work.
b.
For indoor work, critical barriers shall be placed over all openings to
the regulated area.
c.
Impermeable dropcloths shall be placed on surfaces beneath all removal
activity.
3.6.7
Specific Control Methods for Class II Work
**************************************************************************
NOTE: If the removal of the adhesive is necessary,
wet methods should be used when removing residual
adhesive. The adhesive must be either wet-scraped
manually or removed using low speed floor machine
(300 RPM or less) and wetted sand or a removal
solution. The adhesive residues must be placed in
an impermeable trash bag while still wet. Remaining
water or dirt in the area must then be HEPA vacuumed.
Removal of "intact" cements, coatings, mastics, and
flashings is not Class II work. ACM is not rendered
non-intact simply by being separated into smaller
pieces.

[from a building in which ACM has not been verified], use the following
practices as shown in RESPONSE ACTION DETAIL SHEET [56] [57] [58] [59] [60]
[61] [62] [63] [64]. Resilient sheeting shall be removed by adequately wet
methods. Tiles shall be removed intact (if possible); wetting is not
required when tiles are heated and removed intact. Flooring or its backing
shall not be sanded. Scraping of residual adhesive and/or backing shall be
performed using wet methods. Mechanical chipping is prohibited unless
performed in a negative pressure enclosure. Dry sweeping is prohibited.
Use vacuums equipped with HEPA filter, disposable dust bag, and metal floor
tool (no brush) to clean floors.

3.6.7.2
Roofing Material
**************************************************************************
NOTE: Removal or repair of sections of intact
roofing less than 2.5 square meters 25 square feet
in area does not require use of wet methods or HEPA
vacuuming as long as manual methods, which do not
render the material non-intact, are used to remove
the material without creating visible dust. In
determining whether a job involves less than 2.5
square meters 25 square feet, the designer should
specify all removal and repair work to be performed
on the same roof on the same day.
**************************************************************************
When removing roofing materials which contain ACM as described in
29 CFR 1926.1101(g)(8)(ii), use the following practices as shown in
RESPONSE ACTION DETAIL SHEET [74] [75]. Roofing material shall be removed
in an intact state. Wet methods shall be used to remove roofing materials
that are not intact, or that will be rendered not intact during removal,
unless such wet methods are not feasible or will create safety hazards.
When removing built-up roofs, with asbestos-containing roofing felts and an
aggregate surface, using a power roof cutter, all dust resulting from the
cutting operations shall be collected by a HEPA dust collector, or shall be
HEPA vacuumed by vacuuming along the cut line. Asbestos-containing roofing
material shall not be dropped or thrown to the ground, but shall be lowered
to the ground via covered, dust-tight chute, crane, hoist or other method
approved by the CO. Any ACM that is not intact shall be lowered to the
ground as soon as practicable, but not later than the end of the work
shift. While the material remains on the roof it shall be kept wet or
placed in an impermeable waste bag or wrapped in plastic sheeting. Intact
ACM shall be lowered to the ground as soon as practicable, but not later
than the end of the work shift. Unwrapped material shall be transferred to
a closed receptacle. Critical barriers shall be placed over roof level
heating and ventilation air intakes.
3.6.7.3
Cementitious Siding and Shingles or Transite Panels
**************************************************************************
NOTE: Alternate work practices which do not involve
hand removal may be specified according to 29 CFR
1926.1101(g)(8)(vi), "Alternative Work Practices and
Controls"; EPA 340/1-92/013 "A Guide to Normal
Demolition Practices Under the Asbestos NESHAP"; EPA

**************************************************************************
3.9.1
a.
General Requirements
Exposure assessment, air monitoring and analysis of airborne
concentration of asbestos fibers shall be performed in accordance with
29 CFR 1926.1101, and the Contractor's air monitoring plan. Results of
breathing zone samples shall be posted at the job site and made
available to the CO. Submit all documentation regarding initial
SECTION 02 82 13.00 10
Page 47
exposure assessments, negative exposure assessments, and air-monitoring
results.
b.
Worker Exposure.
(1) The Contractor's Designated IH shall collect samples
representative of the exposure of each employee who is assigned to
work within a regulated area. Breathing zone samples shall be
taken for at least 25 percent of the workers in each shift, or a
minimum of 2, whichever is greater. Air monitoring results at the
95 percent confidence level shall be calculated as shown in Table 2
at the end of this section.
(2) [[Provide][The Contracting Officer will provide] an onsite
independent testing laboratory with qualified analysts and
appropriate equipment to conduct sample analyses of air samples
using the methods prescribed in 29 CFR 1926.1101, to include
NIOSH 2003-154 Method 7400.]
(3) Workers shall not be exposed to an airborne fiber concentration in
excess of 1.0 f/cc, as averaged over a sampling period of 30
minutes. Should a personal excursion concentration of 1.0 f/cc
expressed as a 30-minute sample occur inside a regulated work
area, stop work immediately, notify the Contracting Officer, and
implement additional engineering controls and work practice
controls to reduce airborne fiber levels below prescribed limits
in the work area. Do not restart work until authorized by the CO.
c.
Environmental Exposure
(1) All environmental air monitoring shall be performed by [the
Contractor's Designated IH] [and] [Contracting Officer's IH].
(2) Environmental and final clearance air monitoring shall be
performed using NIOSH 2003-154 Method 7400 (PCM) with optional
confirmation of results by [OSHA] [or] [EPA] TEM.
(3) For environmental and final clearance, air monitoring shall be
conducted at a sufficient velocity and duration to establish the
limit of detection of the method used at 0.005 f/cc.
(4) When confirming asbestos fiber concentrations (asbestos f/cc) from
environmental and final clearance samples, use TEM in accordance
with NIOSH 2003-154 Method 7402. When such confirmation is
conducted, it shall be from the same sample filter used for the
NIOSH 2003-154 Method 7400 PCM analysis. All confirmation of
asbestos fiber concentrations, using NIOSH 2003-154 Method 7402,
shall be at the Contractor's expense.
(5) Monitoring may be duplicated by the Government at the discretion
of the CO and at the Government's expense.
(6) Maintain a fiber concentration inside a regulated area less than
or equal to 0.1 f/cc expressed as an 8 hour, time-weighted average
(TWA) during the conduct of the asbestos abatement.
(7) At the discretion of the Contracting Officer, fiber concentration
may exceed 0.1 f/cc but shall not exceed 1.0 f/cc expressed as an
8-hour TWA. Should an environmental concentration of 1.0 f/cc
SECTION 02 82 13.00 10
Page 48
expressed as an 8-hour TWA occur inside a regulated work area,
stop work immediately, notify the Contracting Officer, and
implement additional engineering controls and work practice
controls to reduce airborne fiber levels below prescribed limits
in the work area. Work shall not restart until authorized by the
CO.
3.9.2
Initial Exposure Assessment
**************************************************************************
NOTE: Delete last sentence if not applicable.
**************************************************************************
The Contractor's Designated IH shall conduct an exposure assessment
immediately before or at the initiation of an asbestos abatement operation
to ascertain expected exposures during that operation. The assessment
shall be completed in time to comply with the requirements, which are
triggered by exposure data or the lack of a negative exposure assessment,
and to provide information necessary to assure that all control systems
planned are appropriate for that operation. The assessment shall take into
consideration both the monitoring results and all observations, information
or calculations which indicate employee exposure to asbestos, including any
previous monitoring conducted in the workplace, or of the operations of the
Contractor which indicate the levels of airborne asbestos likely to be
encountered on the job. [For Class I asbestos work, until the employer
conducts exposure monitoring and documents that employees on that job will
not be exposed in excess of PELs, or otherwise makes a negative exposure
assessment, presume that employees are exposed in excess of the PEL-TWA and
PEL-Excursion Limit.]
3.9.3
Negative Exposure Assessment
Provide a negative exposure assessment for the specific asbestos job which
will be performed within [_____] days of the initiation of the project and
conform to the following criteria:
[ a.
Objective Data: Objective data demonstrating that the product or
material containing asbestos minerals or the activity involving such
product or material cannot release airborne fibers in concentrations
exceeding the PEL-TWA and PEL-Excursion Limit under those work
conditions having the greatest potential for releasing asbestos.]
[ b.
Prior Asbestos Jobs: Where the Contractor has monitored prior asbestos
jobs for the PEL and the PEL-Excursion Limit within 12 months of the
current job, the monitoring and analysis were performed in compliance
with asbestos standard in effect; the data were obtained during work
operations conducted under workplace conditions closely resembling the
processes, type of material, control methods, work practices, and
environmental conditions used and prevailing in the Contractor's
current operations; the operations were conducted by employees whose
training and experience are no more extensive than that of employees
performing the current job; and these data show that under the
conditions prevailing and which will prevail in the current workplace,
there is a high degree of certainty that the monitoring covered
exposure from employee exposures will not exceed the PEL-TWA and
PEL-Excursion Limit.]
c.
Initial Exposure Monitoring: The results of initial exposure
monitoring of the current job, made from breathing zone air samples
SECTION 02 82 13.00 10
Page 49
that are representative of the 8-hour PEL-TWA and 30-minute short-term
exposures of each employee. The monitoring covered exposure from
operations which are most likely during the performance of the entire
asbestos job to result in exposures over the PELs.
3.9.4
Independent Environmental Monitoring
**************************************************************************
NOTE: Select the bracketed paragraph and edit if
the Government plans to retain an independent air
monitoring firm to perform any of the following
environmental air monitoring activities ,pre-abatement,
during abatement, or final clearance.

Preabatement Environmental Air Monitoring
**************************************************************************
NOTE: The designer shall research the state,
regional and local laws, regulations, statutes,
etc., to determine air monitoring requirements.
Demolition projects may not require clearance
monitoring.
**************************************************************************
Preabatement environmental air monitoring shall be established [1 day]
[_____] prior to the masking and sealing operations for each regulated area
to determine background concentrations before abatement work begins. As a
minimum, preabatement air samples shall be collected using NIOSH 2003-154
Method 7400, PCM at these locations: outside the building; inside the
building, but outside the regulated area perimeter; and inside each
regulated work area. One sample shall be collected for every 185 square
meters 2000 square feet of floor space. At least 2 samples shall be
collected outside the building: at the exhaust of the HEPA unit; and
downwind from the abatement site. The PCM samples shall be analyzed within
24 hours; and if any result in fiber concentration greater than 0.01 f/cc,
asbestos fiber concentration shall be confirmed using NIOSH 2003-154 Method
7402 (TEM).
SECTION 02 82 13.00 10
Page 50
3.9.6
Environmental Air Monitoring During Abatement
Until an exposure assessment is provided to the CO, environmental air
monitoring shall be conducted at locations and frequencies that will
accurately characterize any evolving airborne asbestos fiber
concentrations. The assessment shall demonstrate that the product or
material containing asbestos minerals, or the abatement involving such
product or material, cannot release airborne asbestos fibers in
concentrations exceeding 0.01 f/cc as a TWA under those work conditions
having the greatest potential for releasing asbestos. The monitoring shall
be at least once per shift at locations including, but not limited to,
close to the work inside a regulated area; preabatement sampling locations;
outside entrances to a regulated area; close to glovebag operations;
representative locations outside of the perimeter of a regulated area;
inside clean room; and at the exhaust discharge point of local exhaust
system ducted to the outside of a containment (if used). If the sampling
outside regulated area shows airborne fiber levels have exceeded background
or 0.01 f/cc, whichever is greater, work shall be stopped immediately, and
the Contracting Officer notified. The condition causing the increase shall
be corrected. Work shall not restart until authorized by the CO.
3.9.7
Final Clearance Air Monitoring
**************************************************************************
NOTE: The designer will research the state,
regional and local laws, regulations, statutes,
etc., and consult with the customers to determine
final air clearance monitoring requirements.
(Demolition projects may not require clearance
sampling). Remove and/or edit the subparagraphs
accordingly.
**************************************************************************
[The Contractor's Designated IH shall] [The Contracting Officer's IH will]
conduct final clearance air monitoring using aggressive air sampling
techniques as defined in 40 CFR 763, Subpart E, Appendix A, Unit III, TEM
Method B.7(d-f) and Table 4 of this section for all indoor asbestos
abatement projects. Clearance air monitoring is not required for outside
work or for soil cleanups.
3.9.7.1
Final Clearance Requirements, NIOSH PCM Method
For PCM sampling and analysis using NIOSH 2003-154 Method 7400, the fiber
concentration inside the abated regulated area, for each airborne sample,
shall be less than 0.01 f/cc. The abatement inside the regulated area is
considered complete when every PCM final clearance sample is below the
clearance limit. If any sample result is greater than 0.01 total f/cc, the
asbestos fiber concentration (asbestos f/cc) shall be confirmed from that
same filter using NIOSH 2003-154 Method 7402 (TEM) at Contractor's
expense. If any confirmation sample result is greater than 0.01 asbestos
f/cc, abatement is incomplete and cleaning shall be repeated. Upon
completion of any required recleaning, resampling with results to meet the
above clearance criteria shall be done.
3.9.7.2
Final Clearance Requirements, EPA TEM Method
For EPA TEM sampling and analysis, using the EPA Method specified in
40 CFR 763, abatement inside the regulated area is considered complete when
the arithmetic mean asbestos concentration of the 5 inside samples is less
SECTION 02 82 13.00 10
Page 51
than or equal to 70 structures per square millimeter (70 S/mm). When the
arithmetic mean is greater than 70 S/mm, the 3 blank samples shall be
analyzed. If the 3 blank samples are greater than 70 S/mm, resampling
shall be done. If less than 70 S/mm, the 5 outside samples shall be

CLEARANCE CERTIFICATION
When asbestos abatement is complete, ACM waste is removed from the
regulated areas, and final clean-up is completed, the CO will allow the
warning signs and boundary warning tape to be removed. After final
clean-up and acceptable airborne concentrations are attained, but before
the HEPA unit is turned off and the containment removed, the [Contractor
shall] [Government will] remove all pre-filters on the building HVAC system
and provide new pre-filters. Dispose of such filters as asbestos
contaminated materials. HVAC, mechanical, and electrical systems shall be
re-established in proper working order. The Contractor and the CO shall
visually inspect all surfaces within the containment for residual material
or accumulated debris. Reclean all areas showing dust or residual
materials. The CO will certify in writing that the area is safe before
unrestricted entry is permitted. The Government will have the option to
perform monitoring to certify the areas are safe before entry is permitted.

FORMULA FOR CALCULATION OF THE 95 PERCENT CONFIDENCE LEVEL
(Reference: NIOSH 7400)
_______________________________________________________________________
Fibers/cc(01.95 percent CL) = X + [(X) * (1.645) * (CV)]
Where:
X = ((E)(AC))/((V)(1000))
E = ((F/Nf) - (B/Nb))/Af
CV = The precision value; 0.45 shall be used unless the
analytical laboratory provides the Contracting Officer
with documentation (Round Robin Program participation
and results) that the laboratory's precision is better.
AC = Effective collection area of the filter in square millimeters
V = Air volume sampled in liters
E = Fiber density on the filter in fibers per square millimeter
F/Nf = Total fiber count per graticule field
B/Nb = Mean field blank count per graticule field
Af = Graticule field area in square millimeters
TWA = C1/T1 + C2/T2 = Cn/Tn
Where: C = Concentration of contaminant
T = Time sampled.
