Asbestos containing materials (ACMs) fall into 3 categories.

As a fully licensed removal company any asbestos works we conduct are carried in accordance with ‘The control of asbestos regulations 2012’.
Removal Under Controlled Conditions
The type of asbestos and its location will determine which category it falls into. Asbestos removal works under controlled conditions are subject to a 14-day notification period (to the HSE). For each job, Abbey Contracting will present you with site specific method statements and risk assessments. Where appropriate we will notify the HSE and the Environment Agency of planned controlled asbestos removal works and hazardous waste disposal.
Air Clearance Testing
Once asbestos removal works are complete air testing is carried out. In controlled works air clearance testing is carried out by an independent UKAS accredited laboratory. The asbestos is then transported and disposed at a landfill site in accordance with the Hazardous Waste Regulations 2011.
Project Health & Safety File
For controlled works an end-of-works health & safety file is provided which includes air clearance certification to satisfy any future Health & Safety inspections.
