This document analyzes the costs and benefits of the revision to the April 1986 abatement project rule. The revisions were promulgated on 2/25/87 (52 FR 5618). This anlaysis is based primarily on a July 1985 report prepared for EPA by the Research Triangle Institute entitled Asbestos Abatement Rules: A Preliminary Cost-Effectiveness Analysis(RTI 1985). That paper was an analysis of regulatory options under consideration for protecting abatement workers and building occupants during and after asbestos abatement activities. This paper estimates the incremental costs incurred under this rule amendment and the incremental benefits in terms of avoided cases of cancer from asbestos exposure reduction.
