RULE 6-110 - PURPOSE:

On March 27, 1986, pursuant to Section 39662 of the Health and Safety Code, the Air Resources Board (Board) identified asbestos (in the following forms: chrysotile, crocidolite, amosite, tremolite, actinolite, and anthophyllite) as a toxic air contaminant for which there is not sufficient available scientific evidence to support identification of a threshold exposure level below which no significant adverse health effects are anticipated. This airborne toxic control measure is expected to reduce asbestos emissions from future use of asbestos-containing serpentine material usage in surfacing applications to the lowest level achievable through a prohibition on the sale and use of asbestos-containing serpentine material.
