Jurisdictions requiring Asbestos Inspections for Permits

The Code of Virginia and The Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code (VUSBC) require the submission of an asbestos inspection certification to the Office of Building Code Services prior to the issuance of a building permit allowing a building for which the initial permit was issued prior to 1985 to be renovated or demolished. The requirement does not apply to single family dwellings or to residential housing with four or fewer units unless the renovation or demolition of such buildings is for commercial or public development purposes.

Many jurisdictions have a certification form, including but not limited to:

  • Fairfax County
  • City of Falls Church
  • Prince William County (Including the Town of Haymarket)
  • Fauquier County
  • Arlington County
