The Asbestos Project Permit Application Service allows you to apply for an asbestos project permit application or demolition notification.

NOTE! The submission of a project permit application or demolition notification does not automatically authorize you to conduct renovation or demolition activities. You must have a project permit or stamped demolition notification on site.

Special Notes
  1. If you are applying for an emergency renovation application or ordered demolition application, you may not use this service. You must first contact the Department of Environmental Quality Asbestos Control Program, at 406-444-5300 or email us at deqacponline@mt.gov, regarding the activity and you must submit the application on paper.

  2. Prior to conducting any demolition or renovation activity, the facility or part of the facility to be impacted must be inspected by a Montana-accredited asbestos inspector. This inspection must be kept on site during renovation and demolition activities.

  3. All fields are required to be filled unless marked "Optional."

To begin using this service, you must log in using ePass Montana, the state's single sign-on solution. ePass Montana allows you to use one username and password to access many eGovernment services.
