It is a legal requirement for all non domestic buildings to have an asbestos survey conducted if the building was built before 2000.
This is a legal requirement. We can make sure that a comprehensive asbestos survey has been completed, ensuring you are fully compliant with UK law.
Asbestos was widely used in building materials between the 1950s and the 1990s. However, it emits tiny particles which can be deadly. Following the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, it is a legal requirement to have an asbestos survey on any pre-2000 non-domestic property. If you are responsible for a non-domestic pre-2000 building, you have a responsibility to ensure an asbestos survey is carried out.
In the event that an adequate asbestos survey is not conducted on the premises, the employer or manager of the building will be held liable. HSE will prosecute where there is evidence of non-compliance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. Consequences of failing to abide by the regulations can be severe, taking the form of heavy fines and potentially even jail time. Therefore, it is crucial that your business ensures an asbestos survey has been conducted.
Completing an asbestos survey for your non-domestic building
The purpose of an asbestos survey is:
- To manage the asbestos in your building
- To provide accurate information on the location and amount of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) present
- To assess the condition, damage or deterioration of the ACMs
- To determine if any further action is required
- To prepare an asbestos register and an asbestos plan of the building
- To identify all the ACMs which must be removed before refurbishment or demolition work.
In order to ensure a suitable and sufficient asbestos survey has been carried out which abides by government regulations, a competent person must conduct the survey. A competent person must have the necessary skills and experience to ensure a comprehensive asbestos survey is completed.
