Asbestos Removal Categories
Depending on the asbestos material type and quantities identified in the asbestos survey report, removal of your asbestos will fall into one of three categories below:
Notifiable Licensed Works
This category means that all work involves Health and Safety Executive licensed asbestos removal operative, under fully controlled conditions. The notifiable section involves submission of the plan of works and as ASB5 (Notice of work with asbestos) to either the HSE or Local Authority depending on the property type. Fully controlled conditions mean controlling the immediate environment around the asbestos removal by erecting a temporary polythene enclosure.
Notifiable Non-Licensed Work
Notifiable non-licensed work was introduced with the amended Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. The regulations impose a responsibility on employers to notify work with asbestos to the relevant enforcing authority, ensure medical examinations are regularly undertaken and maintain registers of work. This is typically for companies and individuals involved in the construction industry who choose to remove non-licensed materials.
This category typically involves low risk materials such as floor tiles and corrugated cement sheets. Guidance on remoavl can be sought at hse.gov.uk filed under asbestos essentials.

At Maple Surveys we can typically have a removal team on site within 48 hours of any works which are not subject to the statutory 14 day notification. For fully licensed notifiable works we can submit notifications and plans of works within 24 hours, far faster than the industry standard of 5-7 working days.
