The regulations describe what dutyholders of commercial premises need to do in order to protect visitors and the workforce from the dangers of asbestos. Surveys consist of a physical inspection of the premises to identify materials that may contain asbestos, which are then recorded in the building’s asbestos register.

Management survey

The Management Survey purpose is required to manage ACM during the normal occupation and use of premises.  The duty-holder can make a Management Survey where the premises are simple and straightforward.  Otherwise, a surveyor is needed.

A Management Survey aims to ensure that:

  1. nobody is harmed by the continuing presence of ACM in the premises or equipment
  2. that the ACM remain in good condition
  3. that nobody disturbs it accidentally

The Survey must locate ACM that could be damaged or disturbed by normal activities, by foreseeable maintenance, or by installing new equipment.  It involves minor intrusion and minor asbestos disturbance to make a Materials Assessment.  This shows the ability of ACM, if disturbed, to release fibres into the air.  It guides the client, eg in prioritising any remedial work.

Refurbishment / demolition survey

The Refurbishment / demolition Survey is required where the premises, or part of it, need upgrading, refurbishment or demolition.  The Survey does not need a record of the ACM condition.  Normally, a surveyor is needed for Refurbishment / demolition Surveys.

A Refurbishment / demolition Survey aims to ensure that:

  1. nobody will be harmed by work on ACM in the premises or equipment
  2. such work will be done by the right contractor in the right way

The asbestos surveys must locate and identify all ACM before any structural work begins at a stated location or on stated equipment at the premises.  It involves destructive inspection and asbestos disturbance.  The area surveyed must be vacated, and certified ‘fit for reoccupation’ after the survey.
