Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA)

Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA)

Ensure Compliance with AHERA

Complying with government regulations on asbestos hazards can often be difficult, but companies have no choice in the matter. TÜV Rheinland helps you stay in full compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA).

Benefits at a Glance

With AHERA compliance services from TÜV Rheinland, you can be sure of:

  • Employee safety
  • Compliance with established EPA standards
  • Reduced risk of company liability with documented safety standards
  • Fast audit times and our long-standing experience
  • TÜV Rheinland's exclusive, one-stop service

AHERA Compliance Services

TÜV Rheinland‘s procedure for delivering AHERA compliance services follows these steps:

  • Review existing AHERA programs for compliance.
  • Provide recommendations for meeting regulatory responsibilities.
  • Collect bulk asbestos-containing building material (ACBM) samples in accordance with EPA and AHERA guidelines.
  • Submit bulk samples to an accredited laboratory for analysis.
  • Prepare report of findings, including documentation as required under AHERA and by Safe State.
  • Review and update the previously prepared asbestos management plan and the operations and maintenance plans with the findings of the Universal Treatment Standards (UTS) inspection.

Additional Information

In 1986, the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) was signed into law as Title II of the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA). Amendments to the act in 1994 mandated specific training and “accreditation” for all individuals doing inspection, project design, project supervision, and project work involving asbestos in schools and public and commercial buildings.
