Montana Asbestos : What you need to know

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. The state regulates asbestos worker certification, training course accreditation, permitting, practices, work practices, and waste disposal for both NESHAP-size and smaller asbestos projects. Montana’s asbestos regulations apply to all persons and entities engaged in an asbestos-related occupation, persons in charge of asbestos abatement projects, and persons who offer course work for accreditation of people engaged in asbestos abatement projects. Homeowners conducting projects in their own home that is used exclusively as a domicile are not subject to the asbestos regulations except that they must comply with packaging, transport, and disposal requirements.
