Asbestos Management Legislation

Under current legislation, there is a duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic premises. In order to manage asbestos, a survey will often be required. If you are purely looking to comply with legislation then you will require a Management Asbestos Survey. However, if you are looking to undertake refurbishment or demolition then you will require a more intrusive survey. If you are responsible for a property that falls into the following, then you are likely to be the duty-holder – remember that you may be the duty-holder even if you do not own the property.

Non-domestic property: This property includes: offices, factories, shops, hotels, etc. As a rule: this includes anywhere that the public, employees, contractors, etc. may go. The current legislation applying to asbestos in non-domestic premises is The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. For most people the essential parts of the regulations are Sections 4 and 10 (see above). If you are a duty-holder for the property under Section 4, you should comply with the regulations; failure to do so may carry stiff penalties.

What is the history of asbestos in buildings?

Asbestos containing materials (ACMs) may be present in any building in the UK constructed pre-2000. Although asbestos use in construction is most commonly recognised in the 1960s and 70s, buildings constructed before or after these dates may have had asbestos containing materials added up until the final outright ban in 1999 We can provide you with an Asbestos Survey in the Area

Property Types

Apartment blocks and flats: Even though these may be thought of as being in the domestic realm, the regulations apply to the 'common areas' of such buildings. Therefore, areas likely to be covered by the regulations will include any public or shared space including the: roof, attic space, stairways, corridors, boiler rooms, lift shafts, meter cupboards, etc.; as well as the outside of the building, and any shared out-buildings (for example, garages).Buy to let: Owners of houses or flats that are let out on the basis that the owner maintains responsibility for repair and maintenance are also subject to The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

How long will an Asbestos Survey take?

The amount of time it takes to do the asbestos survey will depend on the size and complexity of the building, but we will give you a rough idea of this before we arrange the Asbestos Survey visit with you. 

What do we need from you?

Plans of the building if possible and access to all areas for samples to be taken if necessary.
