Asbestos Surveying Services

Management Survey

A management survey is the first of our standard asbestos surveying services. Its purpose is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACM’s in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to assess their condition.

The survey will involve sampling and analysis of suspected ACM’s to confirm the presence or absence of asbestos fibres. However, a management survey can also involve presuming the presence of asbestos. A management survey can be completed using a combination of sampling ACM’s and presuming ACM’s or, indeed, just presuming.

The management survey provides a register of asbestos containing materials for the site and assists with the creation and implementation of a management plan. In turn, this is the required minimum standard of Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, Regulation 4, Duty to Manage.
