If your (non-domestic) property was built before 2000, there is a legal duty to have an asbestos survey in place.
Commercial properties built before 2000 should all have an asbestos register (survey) in place, and any located ACM’s need be managed before being reviewed on an annual basis. However, this is not the case as unfortunately many UK properties have not undergone an asbestos survey or the appropriate management controls are not in place. When this is combined with a lack of awareness among tradesmen, the general public and worse still property owners, it can lead to confusion.
For many individuals and organisations, the first time that they realise they are required to provide asbestos information. If your property needs a survey, Energy Cert Scotland can help to arrange for one to be carried out on the premises.
