Asbestos Management Plan

Requirements in Brief

After a survey or assessment shows Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) are present or are likely to be present, regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAWR) 2012 requires the *duty holder to produce a written plan recording:

  • The risks from such known or presumed ACMs as identified in the assessment
  • Measures to be taken to reduce or eliminate any risks, including risk assessments and method statements where work on ACMs is to be undertaken in house
  • A plan for the continuous monitoring and maintenance of known or presumed ACM’s until removal of them is necessary. The results of the continuous monitoring must be recorded.

All elements of the plan must be reviewed and, where necessary, revised at regular intervals, particularly risk assessments accounting for any change of use of the premise. The plan when complete should identify all risks associated with the ACMs within the premises (regardless of how low the risk is) and the measures in place to reduce them.

The plan must be available to all persons (employees, contractors and or visitors to the premises) liable to disturb any of the known or presumed ACMs within the premises. This includes the emergency services.
