Type 3 Asbestos Survey

If you are responsible for a non-domestic building then you are responsible for ensuring a type 3 asbestos survey is conducted if any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out.

We can provide your business with qualified asbestos surveyors who will conduct a type 3 asbestos survey to ensure your business is fully compliant with UK law.

Following the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, all duty holders, building owners, employers or surveyors of buildings which may contain asbestos containing materials (ACM) must conduct a type 3 asbestos survey if refurbishment or demolition work is planned to be carried out. Type 3 asbestos surveys are now referred to as Refurbishment/Demolition Surveys under HSE guidelines.

When asbestos containing materials are disturbed, they can be extremely dangerous to anyone who inhales the fibres. Therefore, any work that is planned which may disturb ACM, such as refurbishment or demolition work in a building, must ensure a competent surveyor has conducted a type 3 asbestos survey. It is the legal duty of the employer, duty holder, owner or surveyor of the building to conduct an appropriate type 3 asbestos survey. In the event that an adequate type 3 asbestos survey has not been completed by a competent surveyor, the duty holder will be held accountable. To avoid this, it is crucial that your business has undergone a type 3 asbestos survey if you are planning refurbishment or demolition work.

Type 3 Asbestos Survey

A type 3 asbestos survey is required when a non-domestic building needs upgrading, refurbishment or demolition. A refurbishment/demolition survey will ensure that:

  • No one will be harmed by work on ACM
  • Work will be conducted by a qualified contractor in the correct manner
  • The survey will locate and identify all ACM before work begins
  • The survey will identify destructive inspection and asbestos disturbance
  • The area surveyed is vacated, and certified ‘fit for reoccupation’ afterwards.

It is crucial that a competent surveyor completes a type 3 asbestos survey for your non-domestic property. A professional is required due to the hazardous nature of handling asbestos and the risk to people’s health it can cause.

We can provide you with accredited type 3 asbestos surveyors, who are qualified in assessing, handling and managing ACM.
