Asbestos documents and forms

Asbestos was once a common part of building materials in Philadelphia. However, its fibers can release harmful dust when disturbed. To reduce the risk and inform the public, the Department of Public Health issues:

  • Permits for asbestos abatement.
  • Licenses and certifications for asbestos abatement professionals.
  • Lists of professionals who are certified to perform asbestos abatement in Philadelphia.
  • Educational resources for homeowners.

For more information, see the permit process for asbestos projects.  To determine the cost of asbestos projects, use the Air Management Services fee schedule.
