Non-licensed asbestos removal

The risks associated with non-licensed asbestos removal are lower. For this reason, contractors do not need a licence to complete such projects. Common non-licensed works include the removal of:
• Asbestos cement.
• Vinyl floor tiles.
• Textured decorative coatings.
• Encapsulation of asbestos containing materials that are in good condition.

Notifiable non-licensed asbestos removal

Certain projects can be non-licensable but still require notification. In such cases suitable control measures need to be implemented. The local council will also need to be informed. Examples of two situations that could fall into this category are:
• If the removal area is large.
• If your asbestos cement is in poor condition.

For both licensable and non-licensable work, you still need to make sure you comply with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. This will prevent exposure to asbestos.

Non licenced asbestos works includes:
• Asbestos Cement   
• Asbestos Floor Coverings
