Quote, February 11, 2002

   “PCM sample results are compared to the clearance/re-occupancy standard for indoor air following an asbestos abatement project. This standard is 0.01 fibers per cubic centimeter. Samples found to be above this standard are re-examined using TEM (Transmission Electron Microscopy). The TEM analysis identifies the type of particles collected. TEM results are compared to the clearance/reoccupancy standard for indoor air in schools after an asbestos abatement project. This standard is 70 structures of asbestos per square millimeter. The standard was established pursuant to the federal ‘Asbestos Hazard and Emergency Response Act,’ usually known as AHERA.” [US Senate, 2/11/2002]
