Asbestos Cement Pipe (Transite) Do’s And Don’ts

Reminders:
• There are regulations and there is logic – try not to get the two confused!
• Regulations are often like speed limits – even though they are violated on a regular basis, hardly anyone gets in trouble for it (that does not make speeding legal!)
To Remove Transite Pipe Legally You Must Be Trained
• You can be an asbestos abatement contractor– This requires certification (CA) or licensed (NV) and
registration (in both CA & NV)• You can have Class III trained crews for AC Pipe
– This limits you to 100 square feet per project and 6 linear feet per task in CA!
• You can be AC Pipe Accredited In CA– Requires 4 hour Initial Class
– Requires 2 hour Annual Refresher Class
No matter what 
– you need transite pipe handling policy/plan (IIPP)
