Waiver Requests

Waivers will only be granted in cases of genuine emergency - see:

 

Requests to HSE to waive the 14 day notification period

This is done in two stages:

Firstly notify all licensed asbestos work, using an ASB5 Form and tick the "waiver request" box on the form.

Secondly, to request a waiver, to allow the work to proceed without 14 days notice, you must forward to HSE:

  • the email acknowledgement (and PDF attachment) you will receive when you submit your ASB5 notification,
  • A suitable plan of work prepared to comply with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and
  • written confirmation from the contractor’s client that there is an emergency or equally pressing reason,

using the relevant email address (show below) - you should use only these email addresses - do not send to a named Inspector as he/she may not be in the office (unless specifically requested to do so).

 

Local Authority Waiver Requests
