Asbestos Contractor Registration

About the ACRU

The Asbestos Contractors' Registration Unit (ACRU) operates under a state legislative mandate to register contractors and other employers who perform asbestos-related work. The requirement applies when such work involves 100 sq. ft. or more of asbestos-containing construction materials that have an asbestos content of more than 0.1%. The ACRU evaluates applications for initial and renewal registration, takes administrative action to discipline registrants, assists Cal/OSHA Enforcement District Office compliance efforts and provides information to the public, employees, employers and other governmental agencies.
