Why does my property need to be tested?

On April 6 2018 it became mandatory for every commercial building built prior to 1 January 2000 to have an Asbestos Survey completed.

Asbestos Surveys give Owners/PCBUs the knowledge they require to implement procedures and processes in order to reduce the risk of asbestos exposure.

The Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulations 2016 requires owners of buildings built before 1 January 2000 to complete an Asbestos Management Survey to determine if there are products and materials within the building that contain asbestos, and if there is asbestos found and if there is, what type of asbestos is present with associated risks identified to the building occupants.

The legislation also requires owners who are having work completed on a building built prior to 1 January 2000 to have a Refurbishment/Demolition survey completed to ensure those working on the building are not exposed to asbestos.
