Survey Types

There are four different types of asbestos survey that we can carry out as well as compliance re-inspections:

Asbestos Management Survey - Its purpose is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building, this survey is the minimum required to ensure that Regulation 4 of the duty to manage asbestos in a non-domestic building is correctly followed.

Refurbishment Asbestos Survey - Prior to refurbishment work being carried out, a refurbishment and demolition survey must be completed.

Demolition Asbestos Survey - Prior to demolition work being carried out, a refurbishment and demolition survey must be completed.

Targeted Sampling Survey - These surveys are the most basic survey we offer and would benefit home buyers who require samples taken of suspect material and a brief document being created.

Asbestos Re-inspection Services - Once ACMs have been identified, it is the duty holder's responsibility to inspect these items (at least annually) and create a Management Plan.


All asbestos surveys will do three things:

  1. Locate and record the locations, extent and product type of any presumed or known ACMs, as far as is reasonably practicable
  2. Inspect and record information on the accessibility, condition and surface treatment of any presumed or known ACM
  3. Determine and record the asbestos type, either by sampling and analysis or by making presumptions based on product type and appearance, etc

G'day Rob

Just to let you know - the Morgan and 2CV passed the tough new Australian asbestos laws with flying colours. The import terminal said our asbestos files were the best he'd ever seen. So, thank-you one again for your help.
