Duty to Manage Asbestos

What is the ‘duty to manage’ asbestos and who has it?

The duty to manage asbestos is a legal requirement under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (Regulation 4). It applies to the owners and occupiers of commercial premises (such as shops, offices, industrial units etc) who have responsibility for maintenance and repair activities. In addition to these responsibilities, they also have a duty to assess the presence and condition of any asbestos-containing materials.

If asbestos is present, or is presumed to be present, then it must be managed appropriately. The duty also applies to the shared parts of some domestic premises.

If you have a duty to manage asbestos then we are able to provide asbestos reports, and also offer a 24 hour sampling service.

  • H&S Officer from Deluxe-beds LTD- we recently had an asbestos management survey done from PAC. not only was the price very reasonable, it was also value for money, the guys clearly worked hard, investigated every little detail, advised well and produced an absolute perfect survey report, Well above anything I expected.Our factory is very big, and I would have expected to have a difficult time working the report out, but i haven't and i will find it very easy to create the register and management plan. very professional, thank you!
