When Do You Need an NYC DEP ACP5?
nyc-acp5-sealNYC law requires that an ACP5 asbestos inspection be performed prior to the start of any renovation or demolition project requiring a permit from the New York City Department of Buildings (NYCDOB). The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Asbestos Assessment Report (ACP5) ensures that no asbestos containing materials (ACM) will be disturbed during the renovation or demolition process.

The Inspection Process
The ACP5 asbestos investigation process starts with a thorough examination of the architects drawings or plans. All potential asbestos containing materials (PACM) which will be disturbed during the demolition phase will need to be sampled. The list of PACM and number of samples of each material to be sampled are prescribed by NYS/NYC regulations.

The inspector will sample all required materials and then have them analyzed by our ELAP certified asbestos laboratory for asbestos content.

Issuing the ACP5
Upon receiving laboratory results, if no asbestos is present in any of the materials sampled, Accredited Environmental Solutions will complete the electronic filing with the DOB and issue an ACP5 within 24-48 hours. The ACP5 Asbestos Assessment Report Form will be signed and stamped by a licensed New York City Asbestos Investigator and emailed directly to the client, architect or expeditor. The ACP5 form is filed electronically with the DEP and is required by the New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) before a construction permit is issued.

If asbestos is present in any of the materials sampled Accredited can assist you in determining the most cost effective next steps for your project.

Even if you were told your condo does not contain asbestos, NYC Local Law 76/85 mandates an asbestos survey to verify that no asbestos is present in the materials that will be demolished.
