FAQs from Contractors

Where can I get a copy of an Ohio EPA Notification of Demolition and Renovation or Regulated Asbestos Material Waste Shipment form?

Forms and instructions for completing them can be obtained from the asbestos links page. (Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to view forms online, and is available as a free and easy download at Adobe's web site). If you cannot open a PDF file, a form can be faxed to you by contacting this agency.

Who is responsible for submitting the notification: the owner of the building or the contractor performing the renovation/demolition?

The owner and contractor share the notification responsibilities. They must decide together who will submit the notification. The party who signs the notification is responsible for the $100 notification fee. Checks and money orders should be made payable to the Treasurer of Hamilton County. The EPA can hold either or both parties responsible if neither provide adequate notice.

Once a project is completed, Ohio EPA will bill the owner or contractor for any RACM removed plus a $75 notification fee. This fee is separate from the fee charged by Hamilton County.

Where can I find an Ohio Asbestos Hazard Evaluation Specialist to perform a survey?

Lists of certified Ohio Asbestos Hazard Evaluation Specialists and Contractors are available on the Ohio Department of Health website. This site also includes lists of accredited labs for asbestos sample analysis, approved asbestos training classes and training centers, and landfills that accept asbestos containing materials.

Where do I send the notification?

If the project will occur in Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton, or Warren Counties, send the notification to the attention of Ken Wilkins at:

Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency
250 William Howard Taft
Cincinnati, OH 45219
