On very short turnaround, the LSPA learned of and submitted comments to the MA Department of Labor Standards on their Draft Asbestos Regulation 454 CMR 28.00 regarding the removal, containment, maintenance, or encapsulation of asbestos. Our main concern related to ensuring that LSPs do not also have to be licensed Asbestos Project Designers in order to carry out their MCP work, including signing "Soil Characterization and Management Plans," and conducting "asbestos risk assessment and asbestos management planning."  Read the LSPA's letter

Many thanks to the LSPA's Regulations Committee for spearheading this effort!
