Online Asbestos-Related Work Notification
Asbestos

Asbestos Contractors may now notify the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) of their regulated asbestos projects through the Internet. They may also now submit amendments to their original notifications. Consultants conducting air monitoring may also notify MDH with this system as well.

Notice

Effective July 1, 2021, asbestos-related work (Minnesota Statutes 326.71, subdivision 4) no longer includes the exemption of asbestos-containing floor tiles and sheeting, roofing materials, siding, and all ceilings with asbestos-containing material (ACM) in single family residences and multifamily facilities with no more than four dwelling units. The change impacts the amount of the residential project fee you submit to the Minnesota Department of Health. The fee amount will depend on how much friable ACM is subject to abatement, enclosure, and encapsulation.

For residential or multifamily facility projects where the quantity of friable ACM is greater than six but less than 160 square feet, greater than ten but less than 260 linear feet, or greater than one cubic foot but less than 35 cubic feet, the permit fee is $35.

For residential or multifamily facility projects where the quantity of friable ACM is greater than 160 square feet, 260 linear feet, or 35 cubic feet, the permit fee is 2% (of the total project cost).

For non-residential or commercial projects (single projects, a series of small projects, and maintenance projects) where the quantity of friable ACM is greater than 160 square feet, 260 linear feet, or 35 cubic feet, the permit fee is 2%.

IMPORTANT: MDH regulations require that notification and permit fees be received by MDH five calendar days prior to beginning of any asbestos-related work project. If there are any issues with payment through US Bank's website, the contractor's computer crashing, MDH's servers being down for maintenance, etc. it is still the contractor's responsibility to ensure that these regulations are complied with.

If you do not receive a permit before the start date of your project, contact MDH at 651-201-4620 for guidance. Do not begin your project before you receive your permit. It is a violation of Minnesota Rules, part 4620.3435 item A to conduct an asbestos project without a permit posted at the worksite.
