Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012

Asbestos has been banned in all form in the UK, importation and export. White asbestos was banned in 199 onwards and blue and brown in 1985.

A licensed contractor is required to undertake any work with asbestos, a licensed contractor will have gone to the HSE with qualifications, paperwork, health screening to prove they have the requirement not cause any harm.

If licensed work is being undertaken a method statement and risk assessments need to be sent 14 days before work commences. The HSE will come down hard if this rule is broken.

A requirement under the Management Regulations states risk assessments to be undertaken as well as areas such as exposure limits and training.
