About this site

This Webcommunity is for anyone who is interested in asbestos licensing issues and wants to keep up to date with the latest news and policies.   It has been set up by the HSE's Asbestos Licensing Unit. We strongly recommend that all licence holders join the Webcommunity as this will ensure that information about any updates will be sent to you via e-mail so you don't have to keep checking for changes.    The webcommunity also provides a useful opportunity to exchange views with other members via our Discussion Forum
