NYS Asbestos Fast Track Variances (FTV)
The Engineering Services Unit (ESU) is launching a pilot program for certain site-specific variances (SSVs). These new variances will be called "Fast-Track Variances" (FTVs). These are common variances that are issued on a regular basis. At the start of the program, there will be 10 of the variances available, each with an assigned number (see list below). Over time, more FTVs might be added.
A completed SH 752 form must be submitted. The form must include all the necessary information for obtaining a variance, including the hardship. No information about the work plan should be included with the application.
The SH 752 form must be submitted by a certified Project Designer working on behalf of the Petitioner.
The variance fee of $350 must be included.
In Section 9 of the SH 752 form, the Petitioner's Agent must write in the number of the FTV that is requested.
The FTV will be issued as it is written. If some part of the FTV doesn't meet the project's needs, then a standard SSV is required.
Other relief cannot be added to the FTV.
No re-openings or amendments are allowed.
Termination date extension requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
These FTVs have no bearing on notification times.
