  6. Communicating with an IEP regarding issues of sampling, analysis, and verification testing when necessary

Material composition, condition, and value generally correspond to expected services as noted in the following matrix. Non-contaminated items are excluded from the matrix altogether, with no services required except possibly for removing or containing the items to prevent them from becoming contaminated. Stakeholders should participate in decisions regarding restoration or disposal of contents. Recommendations provided by an IEP can be helpful in accompanying these decisions. Property owners or authorized representatives, IEPs, contractors, or others may be involved in the content remediation decision-making process.
