Consultant and Contractor Qualifications

Currently there is no certification program for firms conducting PCBs surveys or abatement. However, two Bay Area industry groups have provided the information summarized below.

ANCEC – Association of Northern California Environmental Consultants. ANCEC has indicated that all of its members (about 15 consulting firms) state that they are qualified to conduct a pre-demolition PCBs building survey. ANCEC’s membership roster is posted on its web page.

AEC – Association of Environmental Contractors. AEC has indicated that all of its members (about 15 contractors) state that they are qualified to conduct PCBs abatements. AEC’s membership roster is posted on its web page.

Please note that the SCVURPPP is simply passing along the above information and has not attempted to evaluate the qualifications of any of the firms that are members of ANCEC or AEC. The above should therefore not be construed as an endorsement of any firm or organization by the SCVURPPP.

Also please note there are many laboratories that are certified to conduct the PCBs analysis method called for in BASMAA’s building survey protocol. Any qualified consultant/contractor should generally be familiar with these laboratories.
