Please excuse the cross-posting.  We are in the process of revising our
asbestos management procedures and was wondering how our peer companies
comply with the OSHA requirements to:
      1.    "Édetermine the presence, location, and quantity of ACM and/or
      PACM at the work site."  (1901.1001(j)(2)(i)
      2.    "Émaintain records of all information required to be provided
      pursuant to this section and/or otherwise known to the building owner
      concerning the presence, location and quantity of ACM and PACM in the
      building/facility." 1910.1001(j)(2)(ii)

In an earlier post I asked about performance of comprehensive inspections
and received 3 replies that generally indicated full surveys were not
practiced but focused inspections were done prior to disturbance which
appears practical but may not be OSHA compliant.  So, if you are in that
ballpark, how do you maintain compliance with the regs referenced above?

Thanks in advance for past responses and any light you can shine on this
