(2) shows evidence of a mental or physical impairment, which the department determines may interfere with the certificate holder's safe performance of asbestos abatement work;
(3) knowingly or recklessly disregards safe work practices while performing asbestos abatement work;
(4) permits the duplication or use of one's own certificate by another;
(5) performs work for which certification has not been received;
(6) obtains certification from a training provider that does not have approval to offer training for the particular discipline from either the EPA or AKOSH, provided AKOSH has a contractor certification plan at least as stringent as the EPA MAP;
(7) performs work requiring certification required under 8 AAC 61.600 at a job site without being in physical possession of a valid certificate; or
(8) is civilly fined or criminally convicted under Section 16 of TSCA, 15 U.S.C. 2615 or 2647, for violations of 40 C.F.R. Part 763, or Section 113 of the Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7413, for violations of 40 C.F.R. Part 61, Subpart M.
