To be eligible for this licence you must be able to demonstrate you have carried out training (or have adequate experience) in the asbestos removal industry over the past two years.

Asbestos assessment and air monitoring are required during all friable (Class A) asbestos removal and for non-friable asbestos removal where a risk assessment indicates that airborne asbestos fibres may result from the removal activity.
