The Asbestos Control Program enforces the Emission Standards for Asbestos under the North Dakota Pollution Control Rules.

Currently, there are 55 companies licensed in North Dakota to perform asbestos abatement activities, and over 600 persons certified in the asbestos disciplines, including asbestos abatement workers, supervisors, inspectors, management planners, project designers, and project monitors.
