Do I Need a PCB Remediation Contractor?

 

Although the manufacturing of PCBs was banned in the late 1970s, many PCB-impacted materials were authorized to remain in use and still remain in use today.  These materials are at or near the end of their useful lives and may pose a significant hazard to human health and the environment. In addition to health concerns, the U.S. EPA is currently reassessing these use authorizations and all indications point towards a PCB phase-out that could begin as early as late 2017. To keep your employees safe and your facility compliant with the regulations, a PCB remediation contractor may be necessary to assess, manage and/or remove PCBs at your facility. If you are unsure whether or not PCB contamination exists at your facility, read through the following questions. If you answer “yes” to any of them, you may want to think about hiring a PCB remediation contractor.

  • Was your industrial or commercial facility built or renovated between 1950 and 1979?
  • Are you planning a building renovation or demolition in the future?
  • Do your walls, windows or doorways contain older paint, caulking or grout that is peeling or cracking?
  • Have PCBs ever been detected by a PCB remediation contractor in you facility in the past?
  • Has a PCB remediation contractor performed remedial actions on your facility in the past?
  • Has your facility ever used hydraulic or heat transfer equipment?
  • Has your facility ever used electrical equipment (such as transformers, capacitors or fluorescent light ballasts) that was made before 1980?
  • Has your building or property ever been used for natural gas transmission or distribution?
  • Has your building or property ever been used for electric power generation or distribution?
  • Has your building or property ever been used to manufacture, distribute or dispose of electrical equipment or electrical appliances?
  • Has your building or property ever been used to manufacture, distribute or dispose of paint, sealants, coatings, adhesives, caulk or grout?
  • Has your building or property ever been used to manufacture, distribute or dispose of building materials, such as insulation, ceiling tiles, HVAC equipment, roofing materials or siding materials?
