A demolition permit shall not be issued by any city, county, city and county, or state or local agency which is authorized to issue demolition permits as to any building or other structure except upon the receipt from the permit applicant of a copy of each written asbestos notification regarding the building that has been required to be submitted to the United States Environmental Protection Agency or to a designated state agency, or both, pursuant to Part 61 of Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations, or the successor to that part. The permit may be issued without the applicant submitting a copy of the written notification if the applicant declares that the notification is not applicable to the scheduled demolition project. The permitting agency may require the applicant to make the declaration in writing, or it may incorporate the applicant’s response on the demolition permit application. Compliance with this section shall not be deemed to supersede any requirement of federal law.
