(a) The C-22 – asbestos abatement contractor classification shall operate as a
stand-alone specialty contractor classification for asbestos abatement work,
notwithstanding any other classification held by the licensed contractor.
(b) No general building contractor, as defined in Section 7057 of the Code, shall

classification.
(d) The Registrar may waive the trade examination, pursuant to Section 7065.3, for
the C-22 – asbestos abatement contractor classification for a licensed contractor who

classification within the last 10 years immediately preceding the filing of the application.
The licensee shall have obtained the asbestos certification after having passed the
