What is Regulation 21?
In 1990, the State of Arkansas promulgated the Arkansas
Pollution Control and Ecology Commission

of facilities, as well as to license asbestos supervisors
The regulation was revised in 1997 to regulate work practices
during demolitions, renovations, and response actions; certify
contractor/supervisors, inspectors, management planners,
project designers, air monitors, and workers; license asbestos
training providers, contractors, and consultants; and establish
a fee system.
Regulation 21 was revised, and the Arkansas Pollution Control and Ecology Commission approved the revision on September 28, 2011. The revised regulation took effect October 8, 2011. A red-line—strike-out version of the new regulation shows the regulation changes the Commission adopted in September 2011. Deleted sections are
