Here in India, majority of population still living under Asbestos homes and work locations. We do import and export Security Cameras and other Monitoring equipment - But never had vendor that I knew talked about Asbestos being Illegal in US.
Like Beraten Software is asking, some elaborate explanation from you could help spread the facts.
Many roofing systems installed from 1950's to now use asbestos in one form or another. Currently you can go to the local hardware store and purchase wall texture and joint compound that is used in hanging or repairing sheetrock and it still contains asbestos fibers. Items that are being used to build homes are still using asbestos fibers. Flooring, wall textures, ceiling textures, shingles, glues are all items that are commonly found to contain asbestos. Most of these items are imported from countries with very different environmental regulations.
Roofing systems and panels that contain asbestos are just one of many ways that asbestos fibers are finding their way into our homes. The US EPA, the WHO and all other credible health organizations list asbestos as a known carcinogen with no known safe level of exposure. In the US its removal is highly regulated in schools and commercial space but home owners are on their own.
