State of Louisiana Asbestos Containing Materials and Waste Materials Renovation/Demolition Contractor Licensing/Accreditation of Disciplines
What licenses are required by the State of Louisiana to work as an asbestos contractor performing renovations and/or demolitions?
Answer: Contractors performing asbestos abatement must be licensed by the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors. Licensing for asbestos abatement is under the commercial license with a specialty in asbestos. Additional information for licensing can be found at http://www.lslbc.louisiana.gov/index.asp or by calling (225) 765-2301.
One of the licensing requirements is that one supervisor/contractor acting as the qualifying party or responsible individual for the company, must be accredited with LDEQ in order to get a license. The Licensing Board has expedited testing and board approval. The time frame was approximately two weeks. Please contact the Licensing Board to determine if this expedited license is still in effect.Courtesy of The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality
