Our team will ensure your business is compliant with regulation 4 ‘Duty to Manage in non-domestic properties’, of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.  

The duty to manage asbestos is contained in regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. It requires the person who has the duty (i.e. the ‘duty holder’) to:

  • Take reasonable steps to find out if there are materials containing asbestos in non-domestic premises, and if so, its amount, where it is and what condition it is in

  • Presume materials contain asbestos unless there is strong evidence that they do not

  • Make, and keep up-to-date, a record of the location and condition of the asbestos- containing materials - or materials which are presumed to contain asbestos

  • Assess the risk of anyone being exposed to fibres from the materials identified

  • Prepare a plan that sets out in detail how the risks from these materials will be managed

  • Take the necessary steps to put the plan into action

  • Periodically review and monitor the plan and the arrangements to act on it so that the plan remains relevant and up-to-date

  • Provide information on the location and condition of the materials to anyone who is liable to work on or disturb them

There is also a requirement on others to co-operate as far as is necessary to allow the duty holder to comply with the above requirements.  Our team will guide your business via our unique approach to asbestos risk management by reviewing your portfolio and providing a simple of clear approach to compliance.
