Clicking the "Enter New Notification" button at the top of this page allows you to begin entering a new notification and will take you to the "Project Information" page.

Underneath this button are two lists: un-submitted notifications and submitted notifications.

  • The Un-submitted and Unpaid Notification list contains your notifications that have not been submitted or paid for yet. Click the "Edit" link to continue filling out your notification. You will have to click the "Save & Continue" button on the bottom of the pages until you get to the section of the notification where you left off.
  • The Submitted Notification list contains your active notifications. They are arranged in order, with the most current "Start Date" at the top. You can print any notification on this page by clicking the "Print Notice" link, or you can amend any of these notifications by clicking the "Amend" link.
  • NOTE: Once a notification has passed the "End Date", it will drop off this list and cannot be amended further.

Project Information Page

Enter the Project Contact first and last names in the required fields. Make sure you are entering your company's Responsible Person or your company's Project Manager in charge of the project. This information is important in case MDH needs to contact your company regarding the project.

Next select the necessary project details: work scope, project type and other information.

Finish this page by choosing an air monitor from the pull-down menu.

  • If your project does not require air monitoring (such as an outdoor siding project), select <None>.
  • If you are conducting all air monitoring (adjacent and clearance) and sending it to an analytical laboratory for analysis (or having a consultant come on-site and analyze the samples), select the name of the consultant or laboratory conducting the analysis and then check the "Air Sampling Analysis Only?" check box.
  • If you are conducting adjacent monitoring and sending it to an analytical laboratory for analysis (or having a consultant come on-site and analyze the samples), but the clearance sampling is being conducted by a consultant, select the name of the consultant conducting the clearance from the pull down menu and then make sure the "Air Sampling Analysis Only?" check box is unchecked.

Click the "Save and Continue" button to move to the next page.

Go to > top

Building Owner Information Page

Enter all the information for the building owner: Building owner name, address, telephone number, etc. Please do not use abbreviations for cities, i.e. MPLS for Minneapolis.

Click the "Save and Continue" button to move to the next page.

Go to > top

Building Information Page

Select either "Residential" or "Non-residential" for the building/site you will be working at. If you select "Residential", the Building name will automatically default to "Residence". If you select "Non-residential" you will have to enter the name of the building/site you are working at.

If the building owners address is the same as the building you will be working at (like a homeowner living in their home) you may check the "Building Address Same As Building Owner?" check box. This will auto fill the building's address. If the building owners address is different, then you need to fill out the building owners address.

Make sure the rest of the information is filled out as well, including county, previous use, etc.

Click the "Save and Continue" button to move to the next page.

Go to > top

Project Details Page

Fill in the project details on this page. Put in the amount of friable or non-friable material you will be removing, along with start and end dates and work shift times.

Next enter the company that did the asbestos inspection of the property, and what type of asbestos-containing material is being removed and where it is located.

If you are going to be onsite at the start of the project make sure the "Onsite?" check box is checked (it will default to this automatically). However, if you are not going to be on site at the start of the project (for instance, a maintenance project at the University of Minnesota) make sure the "Onsite?" check box is unchecked. Otherwise it appears that you are onsite conducting asbestos-related work. When you are going to be onsite, amend the original notification and check the "Onsite?" checkbox.

Finish the page by selecting the type of work practices you will be following.

Click the "Save and Continue" button to move to the next page.

Waste Transporter and Landfill Page

On this page you select your waste transporter and landfill from the pull down menus. If you do not see your transporter and/or landfill on the list, contact MDH. We will enter the waste transporter and/or landfill into the database and it will be available for selection in 24 hours. In the meantime you can do one of two things:

  • wait until the next day to finish entering your notification (it will be saved under the Un-submitted and Unpaid Notices list in your account), or
  • select a different transporter and/or landfill from the list. The following day, amend this notification for the correct waste transporter and landfill.

Click the "Save and Continue" button to move to the next page.

Go to > top

Fee Calculation Page

If you are conducting a residential project the fee will default to $35. If you are conducting a non-residential project, you will need to enter your total cost of abatement in the 1% Fee box. Then select if this fee is covering the air monitoring costs and if the project is a time and materials project. Finally click on the "Calculate" button. Your 1% fee is calculated for you.

Click the "Save and Continue" button to move to the next page.

Review Notice Page

You can review your notice on this page. Check to make sure address numbers aren't transposed or that the direction of the street should be North instead of South, etc. If you find information you wish to change, click on the "Edit" link for that page. When you finish editing that page, click on the "Save & Continue" button on the bottom of the page. Keep clicking on the "Save and Continue" buttons until you arrive back at the Review Notice Page.
