Asbestos Management

Contact with asbestos and its removal is heavily regulated and specifically related legislation includes the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012). Under Regulation 4 the 'Duty to Manage' there is a responsibility on building owners, landlords and agents to manage the risk from asbestos containing material in their premises.

Covid-19: In line with Government advice SOCOTEC remains operational, working hard to support clients with critical testing and compliance services during these unprecedented times.

The Duty Holder has a responsibility to:

  • Identify asbestos containing materials (ACMs) present
  • Assess the risk posed by ACMs
  • Prepare a detailed written plan on how to manage the risk of asbestos
  • Implement the plan
  • Review and monitor to ensure compliance
  • Inform those who need to know of the location and condition of ACMs
