If you are the duty holder and you have the responsibility of conducting repairs on your property; Then you will also have the legal responsibility for ensuring your asbestos survey has been conducted.
There are two surveys that can be done on a building to find asbestos, these are a management survey and a refurbishment & demolition survey. The management survey is just a standard survey and its purpose is to identify the location, type, condition and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy. The refurbishment & demolition survey is completed before any refurbishment or demolition work is started. The survey will be fully intrusive and involve destructive inspection as necessary to gain access to all areas.
Asbestos has been used for more than 2000 years and in the UK alone over 1 million commercial, industrial and public buildings contain asbestos material. In the UK asbestos was used between the 1950s and the 1980s, it was in a variety of products such as thermal insulation, fireproofing, electrical insulation and building materials.
