This document is one in a series prepared in support of the EPA Asbestos-In-Schools Program. It was developed to provide guidance to local school officials and their staffs in determining the presence or absence of asbestos in school buildings. Data and information generated during the EPA Technical Assistance Program have been used to design a rigorous sampling and analysis scheme for bulk materials. Implementation of the enclosed sampling protocol will reliably document the presence or absence of asbestos in the bulk materials and provide an interval estimate of the asbestos content.
