Abstract Under the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires each elementary and secondary school to perform an inspection for asbestos-containing building material (ACBM) and to prepare an asbestos management plan. The AHERA regulations further require a reinspection of the ACBM at least once every 3 years. The reinspection guide will assist: Local Education Agencies (LEAs); AHERA designated persons, Asbestos inspectors, and Management planners in meeting the specific requirements for an AHERA reinspection. Further, it provides guidance for improving the accuracy and quality of information available about ACBM during the reinspection. The reinspection period provides an excellent opportunity for schools to re-evaluate and update their programs for managing asbestos. EPA recently issued general guidelines for asbestos in buildings in an advisory letter from the EPA Administrator which was sent to all LEAs. The guide addresses only the Federal requirements for reinspections. A school may also be subject to State or local requirements not discussed here.
