High-quality Asbestos Management Surveys

Do you need an Asbestos Management Survey? The purpose of this type of survey is to identify and quantify asbestos containing materials (ACMs), carried out in a non-intrusive manner. The inspection does not access beneath the fabric of the house.

Asbestos containing materials will be evaluated on their risk to health and safety. And recommendations on how to manage the materials moving forward. A breakdown of the ACMS will be listed within the asbestos register. Providing the framework in order to routinely monitor the materials as part of your management plan.

The survey will ensure:

  • No one is harmed by the continuing presence of asbestos
  • All ACMs remain in a good and undisturbed condition
  • Nobody disturbs the ACMs by mistake

These surveys are required by law under Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations (2012) for non-domestic premises.

If you are the duty-holder of a building built before 2000, you will be responsible for ensuring that an Asbestos Management Survey is carried out and reviewed periodically. Private properties built before this date may also contain asbestos, but there is no obligation to have an Asbestos Management Plan in place.

What does an Asbestos Management Survey do?

Asbestos was widely used in the construction industry before it was banned in 1999. It was used throughout a range of products, including asbestos cement products, textured coatings, floor tiles, insulation boards, pipe lagging, and other materials. This led to a large increase in asbestos-related diseases. However, asbestos only becomes a risk when the material is in poor condition, which risks fibres becoming airborne and inhaled.

During any Asbestos Management Survey – previously known as a Type 2 Survey - all ACMs are identified as far as reasonably practical. Involving an initial visual inspection of the premises, assessing all walls, floors, lofts, service risers, ceilings, and other locations. Then if the visual inspection identifies any suspicious areas, it is then necessary to obtain a safe sample. The collected samples are then analysed to confirm the presence and type of asbestos by a UKAS-approved laboratory.

An Asbestos Management Survey will:

  • Identify the presence, type, and extent of any ACMs
  • Determine the level of damage or deterioration of any ACMs
  • Confirms the best course of action moving forward

The survey is inadequate if you are planning any major refurbishment or demolition work.

Our experienced and qualified asbestos surveyors are systematic and diligent. They have the knowledge, skill, and expertise to undertake a specialist survey. This survey can then be used to create an Asbestos Management Plan, which lists any known asbestos on a property and its condition.

How often should an Asbestos Management Survey be completed?

An Asbestos Management Survey is required when buying or selling a property to better understand any ACMs within the premises. It is not suitable for refurbishment or construction work.

Once an Asbestos Management Survey or Asbestos Refurbishment & Demolition Survey has been carried out, regular surveys must be completed to ensure the safe condition of ACMs and to keep any Asbestos Management plan up to date.

  • "I wanted to say a big thank you to Chris and the team for the superb job they did this morning in dismantling our horrible old asbestos/concrete garage! It was all done very quickly and professionally. They wore PPE and the asbestos roof panels were securely wrapped in plastic sheeting. The site was left clean and tidy afterwards. I also appreciated your sending me your waste licence and a copy of your insurance which was very reassuring as one reads some horror stories about waste disposal cowboys."
