the veteran has inhaled respirable asbestos fibres in an open environment at the time material containing asbestos fibres was being applied, removed, cut or drilled.

35503the veteran has established the causal connection between inhaling respirable asbestos fibres in an open environment and VEA service for the clinical onset of asbestosis.

35504the veteran has established the causal connection between inhaling respirable asbestos fibres in an open environment and operational service for the clinical onset of asbestosis.

or

35505the veteran has established the causal connection between inhaling respirable asbestos fibres in an open environment and eligible service for the clinical onset of asbestosis.

Clinical onset and operational service [35504]

35507

the veteran has inhaled respirable asbestos fibres in an open environment for a cumulative period of at least 3000 hours at the time material containing asbestos fibres was being applied, removed, cut or drilled.

35509

the veteran inhaled respirable asbestos fibres in an open environment for a cumulative period of at least 3000 hours at the time material containing asbestos fibres was being applied, removed, cut or drilled before the clinical onset of asbestosis.

35511

where the veteran inhaled respirable asbestos fibres in an open environment for a cumulative period of at least 3000 hours at the time material containing asbestos fibres was being applied, removed, cut or drilled before the clinical onset of asbestosis, the first such inhalation commenced at least 5 years before the clinical onset of the condition under consideration.
