What are commercial demolition requirements?
The Clean Air Act requires that the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) regulations be followed during the demolition or renovation of a commercial building.

Under the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act, any contractor, worker, inspector, or otherwise that works with asbestos-containing building materials in a commercial building must be accredited by a training program, like the EPA Model Accreditation Plan (MAP).
Your state and local agencies may require more stringent standards than those required by the federal government, so be sure to determine your city and state's demolition and asbestos requirements.
