This document provides information that supplements previous EPA guidance on controlling asbestos-containing materials found in buildings. The document (1) provides a current summary of data on exposure to airborne asbestos, (2) identifies organizational and procedural issues in establishing an asbestos program, (3) reviews technical issues confronted when assessing the potential for exposure to airborne asbestos in particular indoor settings, (4) summarizes and updates information on applicability, effectiveness, and relative costs of alternative remedial actions, (5) suggests a structured process for selecting a particular course of action given information on exposure levels, assessment methods, and abatement techniques, (6) introduces and discusses criteria for determining successful asbestos control. The material presented is a summary of information and experience gained over the 4 years since previous guidance was published.
