The duty holder is responsible for the safe management of asbestos containing material (ACM) within such premises. In order to enable him to manage the risk from asbestos, the duty holder shall ensure that a suitable and sufficient assessment is carried out as to whether asbestos is or is liable to be present in the premises.

The duty holder must ensure that the risk from the asbestos is assessed, that a written plan identifying where that asbestos is located is prepared and that measures to manage the risk from the asbestos are set out in that plan are implemented. Associated parties have a legal duty to cooperate with the duty holder,

Complying with these regulations means the completion of an asbestos survey. By carrying out an asbestos survey, a risk assessment/ management plan can be produced which should prevent or reduce exposure.

A standard asbestos survey. Its purpose is to locate as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to assess their condition.


A refurbishment and demolition survey is needed before any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out. This survey is used to locate and describe, as far as reasonably practicable, all ACMs in the area where the refurbishment work will take place or in the whole building if demolition is planned. The survey will be fully intrusive and involve destructive inspection, as necessary, to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to reach. A refurbishment and demolition survey may also be required in other circumstances, e.g. when more intrusive maintenance and repair work will be carried out or for plant removal and dismantling.

The location, condition and extent of all asbestos containing materials and suspected asbestos containing materials identified during the asbestos survey are recorded in the form of an asbestos register.
