Is Asbestos Still Legal?

Yes. In the field we often explain to people that it is still legal to use asbestos in homes and buildings. In fact there is a company here in Denver who still manufactures at least two asbestos containing housing products. Over the years various legislation has been passed in regard to asbestos which limited production, use, and created removal requirements, but the bottom line is it can still be used and it is still a problem. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a great website, you can find it here, and it goes into The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) and National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) Act are two of the major bits of legislation. Here in Colorado we have legislation called Regulation 8 (Reg 8) that governs the work that we do, and you can find it on the web here.
