Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Florida has adopted the federal asbestos National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP). For details, see the national section ASBESTOS. In addition, the state charges asbestos removal fees and requires licensing of asbestos consultants, contractors, and business organizations.

Florida does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health plan; therefore, federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rules are in effect.

Administration and enforcement. DEP is responsible for enforcing the federal NESHAP standards. DBPR and DLES are responsible for licensing asbestos consultants, contractors, and business organizations.
