No, there are three different types of Asbestos Survey:

  • Asbestos Management Survey (formally type 1 and type 2 asbestos survey) – Its purpose is to locate as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building.
  • Pre-Refurbishment Asbestos Survey (formally type 3 asbestos survey) – A pre-refurbishment asbestos survey is needed before any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out.
  • Pre-Demolition Asbestos Survey (formally type 3 asbestos survey) – A pre-demolition asbestos survey is needed before any demolition work is carried out.

The type of Asbestos Survey most appropriate will be dependent on client/property specific requirements and will be established during the survey planning phase.

Note - The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 requires that the condition of asbestos-based products needs to be re-inspected regularly and records updated accordingly. The frequency of the asbestos inspection regime must not exceed 12 months.
