Is Asbestos Management a legal requirement?

Yes, all premises save that of the inside of a domestic dwelling must have an asbestos management plan and be checked regularly according to the plan, this also applies to communal areas of domestic premises. Internally, a home-owner or resident in rented property will expect to rely on any trades carrying out works being fully trained by their employer and compliant with current legislation.

To ensure that employees and managers are suitably trained, a one day Duty to Manage overview is available and for those who hold the duty holders role should take the three day Duty to Manage Appointed person course, both UKATA approved and industry recognised.
