The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 (CAR 2006) reinforces the legal obligations on those responsible for non-domestic premises to identify and manage any potential asbestos. This includes anyone who is responsible for a shop, factory, warehouse or any other building that is non-domestic.

Non-compliance with this legislation is a criminal offence. In addition to this, many insurance companies insist that policy holders are compliant.

Compliance can only be done effectively by commissioning an asbestos survey.
Our asbestos surveys ensure that you are compliant with the following legal requirements:

Taking reasonable steps to identify whether asbestos is present and, if so, its quantity and condition.
Presuming materials contain asbestos unless there is evidence that they do not .
Assessing the risk of anyone being exposed to airborne fibres.
Preparing an Asbestos Plan – periodically reviewed and revised to ensure the information is current.
Providing information on the location and condition of any asbestos
