NEW ONLINE SYSTEM
MBARD has a new online system for submittal of Asbestos Program (Demolition/Renovation) Notifications. Please follow the instructions to create an account and how to submit a notification. Online submittal Link: https://aca-prod.accela.com/MBARD/Default.aspx Payments will be submitted at the completion of the notification process, either by credit card or electronic check through the online system.
DEMOLITION AND ASBESTOS RENOVATION NOTIFICATIONS WILL NOW BE NOTIFIED SEPARATELY.
Going forward Demolition Contractors will only be reporting for their demolition part of the project (in some cases they may be able to provide information for non-friable materials if no RACM). Demo contractors will still report Cat I and/or Cat II non-friable asbestos materials that are associated with the Demo project if no RACM is part of the project. For Regulated Asbestos Containing Material (RACM), an Asbestos Contractor will be responsible to complete a separate notification, for the asbestos abatement part of the project. By having both Contractors responsible for their own notifications, this will help in eliminating any misunderstanding of notifications that could lead to a violation.
The purpose of the Asbestos Program is to protect the public from uncontrolled emissions of asbestos through enforcement of the Federal Asbestos Standard and Air District Rule 424.
The Program covers most renovations and demolition projects in Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz Counties. Elements of the Program include Survey and Notification Requirements prior to beginning a project, as well as Work Practice Standards and Disposal Requirements. The Program operates on a “Cradle to Grave” basis through the regulation of all aspects related to the handling of asbestos materials from discovery and removal, through transportation and disposal.
