Asbestos can potentially be found in any commercial or domestic building built or refurbished before the year 2000. Asbestos may have been used in pipes, lagging, water tanks, ceilings, floor tiles and other areas.

An asbestos survey is an effective way to help you manage asbestos at your premises.
The survey will provide you with accurate information about the presence, type, condition and quantities of asbestos.
Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, there is now a duty to manage the risk from asbestos. You are not legally obliged to have an asbestos survey, but it is highly recommended.
No, this is not required, providing that you manage the asbestos in accordance with CAR 2012 Regulations. You should ensure that you have a clear plan for managing the asbestos and use appropriate labelling, permit to work and regular inspection.
Under the 2012 Control of Asbestos regulations, organisations are required to legally comply with and address issues such as risk management, assessing risks to employees and asbestos awareness. We can advise you on the most cost effective and risk-free way to achieve this, from the control of asbestos regulations to ways to reduce the cost of managing asbestos in your properties.
