Property owners, occupiers and managers have a legal duty to record the location and condition of asbestos and presumed asbestos containing materials (ACMs). This duty is currently restricted to non-domestic premises and the communal areas of tenanted domestic premises.
In addition to this, a risk assessment of the likelihood of exposure to asbestos is required for each of the materials encountered and this information needs then to be compiled into an asbestos management plan based on the condition of the materials. This includes monitoring and reviewing the condition of asbestos and presumed ACMs.
