2 2 AFI _LUKEAFBSUP 5 NOVEMBER Purpose and Scope (Added) (Luke AFB) Luke is adding this information to the parent publication. Background: Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral whose crystals form long, thin fibers. Asbestos was widely used because of its insulating properties, its ability to withstand heat and chemical corrosion, and its soft, pliant nature. Asbestos was used in sprayed-on fireproofing, acoustical plaster, pipe, boiler and mechanical equipment insulation, drywall joint compound, asbestos cement siding, roofing shingles and tars, floor tiles and mastic, and even electrical wire insulation. In 1989, the EPA promulgated its "Ban and Phase Out Rule," which prohibited the manufacture, importation, processing, and commercial distribution of approximately 95 percent of all commercially available asbestos-containing materials used in the United States. However, the ban was discontinued by the EPA in 1993, and asbestos products are again being freely distributed in this country. Items found to be available to Luke AFB include transite materials from Mexico, drywall from Asia, floor tile from China, sheetrock compound, adhesives, mastics, and roofing materials. This requires even greater management efforts and building material screening by civil engineers, contracting officers, and facility managers to prevent the reintroduction of asbestos containing building materials (ACBM) into areas that were constructed asbestos free or previously abated. 2. Requirements: 2.1. Asbestos Abatement and Removal. Asbestos abatement/removal is conducted in-house or by contract. In-house abatement is governed by the Asbestos Operating Plan (AOP), maintained by 56th Civil Engineer Squadron Operations (CEO) Flight. No asbestos abatement services will be purchased on Government Purchase Cards as a contract-by-requestor or for self-help projects. Only CEO, Housing (CEH), Environmental (CEAN) and Programs (CEP) Flights may use a Government Purchase Card to purchase asbestos abatement or identification services. All abatement must be coordinated with the Asbestos Program Officer (APO) in CEAN. 3. Responsibilities: 3.3. Base Civil Engineer (BCE): The BCE develops and implements the base asbestos program; develops and maintains the Asbestos Management Plan (AMP) and the Asbestos Operating Plan (AOP); ensures asbestos is identified and managed in compliance with all applicable directives; and determine whether to contract or perform asbestos work in-house for all Luke AFB real property and geographically separated areas managed by the 56 CES such as Barry Goldwater Range, Gila Bend Auxiliary Air Field, and Fort Tuthill Recreational Area. The BCE appoints the Asbestos Program Officer (APO) from CEAN and the Asbestos Operations Officer (AOO) from CEO (Added) (Luke AFB) Luke is adding this procedure or information to the parent publication. The ESOHC reviews and approves updates to the AMP and the base asbestos awareness and education plan (Added) (Luke AFB) 56 CES/CEAN APO: The APO s primary duty is to administer the AMP and ensure all regulatory requirements are met in asbestos management. The APO:
