CSLB Offers New C-22 Asbestos Abatement License Classification

SACRAMENTO — The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) now offers a C-22 Asbestos Abatement contractor license for anyone who is qualified to perform abatement and disposal work involving construction materials that contain specified levels of asbestos, which is a potentially carcinogenic material.

All C-22 license holders are required to have met designated experience requirements, and have a current and valid registration with the Department of Industrial Relations’ Division of Occupational Safety and Health(DOSH). The C-22 Asbestos Abatement classification functions hand-in-hand with the DOSH registration – all work performed under the C-22 classification must be in accordance with DOSH regulations, requirements, and training.

The C-22 classification is separate from the existing Asbestos Certification (per Business and Professions Code section 7058.5), which continues to be available for contractors who perform asbestos-related work only within the scope of their contractor licenses. The Asbestos Certification functions as an overlay to the specific classification(s) held by the licensee. “The new C-22 classification improves the licensure process for contractors whose business is specific to various types of asbestos abatement work,” said CSLB Registrar Cindi Christenson. “Examinations for this new license classification already are in place.”

The C-22 classification officially became effective January 1, 2015, after final approval from the Office of Administrative Law, and is part of CSLB’s regulations. The full text of the regulation relating to the C-22 Asbestos Abatement classification can be found on CSLB’s website under the “Contractor” heading.
