NYS DOL requires certification of any individual that performs building surveys to be a NYS Inspector. Building Surveys include taking bulk samples of suspect building materials or writing a report regarding the asbestos present in the building. The law requires inspectors to take bulk samples to determine if suspect building materials do or do not contain asbestos; or the inspector may choose not to take samples and assume that the building materials are asbestos-containing material. Similarly, NYC requires that only persons certified by NYC as Investigators and by NYS as Inspectors may select and collect bulk samples for analysis.
