Asbestos Abatement Project Permits


All asbestos removal or repair projects in Boston require a permit issued by the Environmental & Occupational Health Division (EOH). While it is not against the law to have asbestos in good condition present in a building, defective or damaged asbestos materials must be either repaired or removed by a licensed contractor working under a permit.  

Businesses, residential property owners, or asbestos contractors can download the following documents for their use and submittal to the EOH.
