Public Law 99-519: Title II--Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC.
The Environmental Protection Agency's rule on local educational agency inspection for, and notification of, the presence of friable asbestos-containing material in school buildings included neither standards for the proper identification of asbestos-containing material and appropriate response actions with respect to friable asbestos-containing material, nor a requirement that response actions with respect to friable asbestos-containing material be carried out in a safe and complete manner once actions were found to be necessary. The purpose of this title is to: (1) provide for the establishment of federal regulations which require inspection for asbestos-containing material and implementation of appropriate response actions with respect to asbestos-containing material in the Nation's schools in a safe and complete manner; (2) mandate safe and complete periodic reinspection of school buildings following response actions, where appropriate; and (3) require the administrator to conduct a study to find out the extent of the danger to human health posed by asbestos in public and commercial buildings and the means to respond to any such danger.
