No. Demolition of structures with components containing lead-bearing substances does not meet our definition of abatement. Therefore, the workers and their supervisor are not required to be lead licensed when demolishing (razing) a building. Licensure is required if the lead-bearing
substance on the surface of the components, or the components as a whole, are being abated prior to demolition It is
recommended that precautions are taken to protect workers and the public. You should check with other agencies; local, state and
federal, for other requirements. Contact the Missouri Department of Natural Resources Solid Waste Program
about disposal of construction and demolition debris.
