Processing Times for Personnel Licenses and Projects

  • The Asbestos Section does not process same-day personnel license applications. The Asbestos Section will process personnel licenses within 10-15 business days of receipt. Please note that this processing time does not include mailing time. While it is not required, we suggest including a prepaid return label to expedite the mailing process and allow for tracking the shipment or make arrangements for hand delivery to the office. The Asbestos Section does not reimburse for lost mail, the customer will need to apply for a replacement license. If your application is on hold awaiting social security verification, please call (803) 898-4289 to schedule an appointment with staff. 
  • The Asbestos Section does not process same-day project license applications. While we understand that construction project timelines can vary, any revision requests or incomplete applications may require 24-48 hours to review and re-issue the license. For normal revisions that are not time-sensitive, the submission will be processed within 30 days of receipt.
  • Abatement project notification times vary depending on the amount and type of asbestos building materials. These notification times can be found in Regulation 61-86.1 Standards of Performance for Asbestos Projects or contact your county’s Project Manager below.
