The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012 apply to all work with asbestos in the UK. The accompanying Approved Code of Practice L143 describes in detail how such work should be carried out. The Regulations state that whilst work with asbestos is a licensed activity, certain low risk work can be undertaken without a licence, although some of that work still requires a notification to be made.

The most important point that the Regulations require is appropriate asbestos training for the type of work anticipated. If you or your employees are going to undertake work with asbestos you must have appropriate recent training. If you are going to employee someone to work on your asbestos you need to determine that they have such training.

Even if persons are not intending to work with asbestos but are going to work on the fabric of your building then they should have UKATA Asbestos Awareness Training to help them recognise possible asbestos and to know how to respond if they accidentally disturb what maybe asbestos.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 require that every non-domestic property should have an Asbestos Management Plan that details how the person responsible for the maintenance of a building, the Duty Holder, will proceed to ensure that persons are not exposed to asbestos.
