LEED O+M: Existing Buildings | v2 - LEED 2.0

Asbestos removal or encapsulation

EQp3 | Required


Reduce the potential exposure of building occupants to asbestos and prevent associated harmful effects of asbestos in existing buildings.


  • Have in place an asbestos management program.
  • Identify the applicable regulatory requirements.
  • Have survey records that identify where asbestos is located in the building an on the site so that the asbestos present can be addressed appropriately in the ongoing asbestos management program. If the existing survey records do not cover all areas of the building, conduct a survey to identify where asbestos-containing materials are present in the remaining areas of the building.
