Asbestos can be found in many different types of building materials. It is important to know if there are any Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) in your home, office, or school before possibly disturbing it during construction, renovations, or regular day-to-day use.

What is an ACP-5 and do I need one?
An ACP-5 certificate shows that a construction project is a "non-asbestos project". It certifies that, based on the scope of work, no asbestos will be disturbed during demolition or construction. In NYC an ACP-5 is required when you are filing paperwork to obtain a construction permit with the Department of Buildings (DOB).
Who can issue an ACP-5?
In New York City, only asbestos investigators certified by the Department of Environmental Protections (DEP) are allowed to issue ACP-5s forms. Asbestos inspectors licensed by the New York State Department of Labor (DOL) may assist in collecting bulk samples for laboratory analysis.
