Who Is NCSC?

The National Crime Scene Cleanup (NCSC) is an emergency trauma scene and biohazard cleaning company that amasses a nationwide network of fully licensed biohazard cleaners. NCSC was established in 2014 by crews whose experience in the field combines over 20 years.


Local Services Offered

Federal, State, & Local Licensure

Fully Licensed Nationwide and in New York

NCSC's operations are headquartered in New York and have been since its establishment. This gives NCSC greater foresight in restoring property damaged by biohazards in New York. Most nationwide companies are not based in New York and therefore miss significant details owing to a lack of local training and licensing. This results in fines and potential environmental or public health risks.


The New York State DEC has specific requirements for anyone transporting regulated waste. This law prohibits anyone from transporting biohazards within or across state lines without being registered and obtaining permits under Part 364.

In addition to a Part 364 permit, each NCSC supervisor and technician holds an NYS DOL Mold Abatement License and are certified to remediate asbestos lawfully under NYS Cert. #13414734. This training is helpful if exposed to asbestos or mold during the demolition and restoration required in severe situations.

What is Covered Under Part 364?

Part 364 states that all vehicles transporting bio must:

  • Have a properly enclosed and secured cargo-carrying area for loading and unloading regulated waste
  • All household hazardous waste must be transported by a vehicle registered and permitted under Part 364.
  • Regulated waste must be dropped off at an authorized and registered facility (also designated on the transporter permit).
  • A copy of the permit is always kept with the registered vehicle.
  • Waste be responsibly contained, marked, and secured in respective containers to ensure maximum protection of the environment during transport.
  • Waste cannot be stored in the vehicle for any longer than 30 days.
  • Require 3 year mandatory operator training in applicable OSHA regulation laws
  • Follow all additional USDOT hazardous material requirements regulated in 49 CFR 173.196
  • Keep records pertaining to regulated waste recordkeeping, reporting, and tracking documentation.
  • Properly decontaminated upon vehicle decommission. Transporter documentation must also be kept for a minimum of 3 years.

In addition, each transport vehicle must display the name of the permit holder and permit number on the driver, passenger, and rear side of the vehicle in numbers and letters at least 3 inches high and in a readable color.

NCSC follows these requirements while also ensuring there are no graphics, signage, or branding to bring unnecessary attention to the situation. 

Frequently Asked Questions

If your question is not listed here, feel free to ask when you call.

1What is a bloodborne pathogen?

A bloodborne pathogen is any harmful microorganism that produces disease in human blood. A bloodborne pathogen is considered HIV and certain types of hepatitis, for example.

All bodily fluids should be treated as biohazard waste for their ability to transmit pathogens--however a bloodborne pathogen refers to a pathogen in blood. These blood pathogens can be present in other bodily fluids as well, particularly if the individual is sick with blood present in feces, urine, or vomit.

That is especially the reason why you want to always treat bodily fluids as biohazards and treat them appropriately.

2How long is a bloodborne pathogen considered infectious?

It depends on the pathogen. Certain pathogens like HIV or Hepatitis can remain alive for over a week. Lesser infectious and fatal viruses such as Herpes can survive for a few hours up to a week.

It all depends on the pathogen and the surface.

3What disinfectant do you use?

OSHA and the EPA permit different types of disinfectants that are chosen based on the situation. NCSC teams always strive to use non allergenic and environmentally friendly options for every situation. When you call, a representative will explain the this process further.

The cost of services starts from $2,500 a day however this depends greatly depending on the severity of the situation and additional factors, e.g. insurance coverage. 86% of our customers since 2014 haven’t paid a single dollar out of pocket for their cleanup situation.

In the rare event insurance coverage is not available, all standard payment methods including major credit cards, insurance company claims when it applies, and company checks for business customers.
