The laws for the removal of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) in the State of New York can be found in the York State Industrial Code Rule 56, cited as 12NYCRR Part 56 as amended, March 21, 2007.

Within this law lies the requirements for the building owner to have conducted air monitoring before, during and after most ACM abatement projects.

Testing Mechanics Corp. will perform all required air testing in accordance with NYSDOL Code Rule 56 including amendments and interpretations, as well as all other regulations as they pertain to frequency, methods, procedures and quality assurance of testing and analysis. Testing Mechanics Corp. will provide an on-site technician who will perform the required sample collection and return samples to the laboratory for analysis. Our licensed Asbestos Project monitors will also scrutinize the Asbestos Abatement Contractor's procedures to assure compliance with the law, and, in doing so, protect building occupants from possible exposure to asbestos fibers.
