  643.225.  Rules for asbestos abatement projects, standards and examinations — certification requirements — application — examination, content — certificate expires, when — fees — renewal of certificate requirements — refresher course — failure to pass examination, may repeat exam, when — fee for renewal. — 1. The provisions of sections 643.225 to 643.250 shall apply to all projects subject to 40 CFR Part 61, Subpart M as adopted by 10 CSR 10-6.080. The commission shall promulgate rules and regulations it deems necessary to implement and administer the provisions of sections 643.225 to 643.250, including requirements, procedures and standards relating to asbestos projects, as well as the authority to require corrective measures to be taken in asbestos abatement, renovation, or demolition projects as are deemed necessary to protect public health and the environment. The director shall establish any examinations for certification required by this section and shall hold such examinations at times and places as determined by the director.

  2. Except as otherwise provided in sections 643.225 to 643.250, no individual shall engage in an asbestos abatement project, inspection, management plan, abatement project design or asbestos air sampling unless the person has been issued a certificate by the director, or by the commission after appeal, for that purpose.

  3. In any application made to the director to obtain such certification as an inspector, management planner, abatement project designer, supervisor, contractor or worker from the department, the applicant shall include his diploma providing proof of successful completion of either a state accredited or United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) accredited training course as described in section 643.228. In addition, an applicant for certification as a management planner shall first be certified as an inspector. All applicants for certification as an inspector, management planner, abatement project designer, supervisor, contractor or worker shall successfully pass a state examination on Missouri state asbestos statutes and rules relating to asbestos. Certification issued hereunder shall expire one year from its effective date. Individuals applying for state certification as an asbestos air sampling professional shall have the following credentials:

  (1) A bachelor of science degree in industrial hygiene plus one year of experience in the field; or

  (2) A master of science degree in industrial hygiene; or

  (3) Certification as an industrial hygienist as designated by the American Board of Industrial Hygiene; or

  (4) Three years of practical experience in the field of industrial hygiene, including significant asbestos air monitoring experience and the completion of a forty-hour asbestos course which includes air monitoring instruction (National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health 582 course on air sampling or equivalent).  



In addition to these qualifications, the individual must also pass the state of Missouri asbestos examination. All asbestos air sampling technicians shall be trained and overseen by an asbestos air sampling professional and shall meet the requirements of training found in OSHA's 29 CFR 1926.1101. Certification under this section as an abatement project designer does not qualify an individual as an architect, engineer or land surveyor, as defined in chapter 327.

  4. An application fee of seventy-five dollars shall be assessed for each category, except asbestos abatement worker, to cover administrative costs incurred. An application fee of twenty-five dollars shall be assessed for each asbestos abatement worker to cover administrative costs incurred. A fee of twenty-five dollars shall be assessed per state examination.

  5. In order to qualify for renewal of a certificate, an individual shall have successfully completed an annual refresher course from a state of Missouri accredited training program. For each discipline, the refresher course shall review and discuss current federal and state statute and rule developments, state-of-the-art procedures and key aspects of the initial training course, as determined by the state of Missouri. For all categories except inspectors, individuals shall complete a one-day annual refresher training course for recertification. Refresher courses for inspectors shall be at least a half-day in length. Management planners shall attend the inspector refresher course, plus an additional half-day on management planning. All refresher courses shall require an individual to successfully pass an examination upon completion of the course. In the case of significant changes in Missouri state asbestos statutes or rules, an individual shall also be required to take and successfully pass an updated Missouri state asbestos examination. An individual who has failed the Missouri state asbestos examination may retake it on the next scheduled examination date. If an individual has not successfully completed the annual refresher course within twelve months of the expiration of his or her certification, the individual shall be required to retake the course in his or her specialty area as described in this section. Failure to comply with the requirements for renewal of certification in this section will result in decertification. In no event shall certification or recertification constitute permission to violate sections 643.225 to 643.250 or any standard or rule promulgated under sections 643.225 to 643.250.

  6. A fee of five dollars shall be paid to the state for renewal of certificates to cover administrative costs.
