Guidance for Licence Holders

General guidance aimed at asbestos licence holders, but which may well be of interest to others

NameLast Modified
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012
This publication contains the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, the Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) and guidance text. Two ACOPs, L127 (The management of asbestos in non-domestic premises) and L143 (Work with materials containing asbestos) have been consolidated into this single revised ACOP. The presentation and language has been updated wherever possible. It provides guidance text for employers about work which disturbs, or is likely to disturb, asbestos, asbestos sampling and laboratory analysis. It also provides guidance on the specific duty to manage asbestos on the owners and/or those responsible for maintenance in non-domestic premises. The Regulations set out your legal duties and the ACOP and guidance give practical advice on how to comply with those requirements. The Regulations give minimum standards for protecting employees from risks associated with exposure to asbestos.
