(A) Asbestos abatement entities performing asbestos projects shall, before beginning work on a project, obtain an asbestos project license from the department. The license must be obtained for each project, and the fee for the license must be based on the square footage, linear footage, or volume of asbestos involved in the in-placement management, removal, encapsulation, enclosure, renovation, repair, or any other disturbance of regulated asbestos-containing materials.

(B) The department may prescribe appropriate license application forms and may require documentation to be attached to the application which is sufficient to verify that the appropriate fee is paid. The department may by regulation define special projects and prescribe alternate procedures and fees for licensing special projects.
