You will require a licence if you intend to carry out the removal of asbestos or asbestos-containing materials. Asbestos is a naturally occurring silicate mineral made up of tiny fibres. When distributed, it can produce a dust containing asbestos fibres that when breathed in, can cause a range of health issues.
There are two classes of licence:
- Class A authorises the removal of friable asbestos, non-friable asbestos and asbestos contaminated dust debris (ACD).
- Class B allows you to remove non friable (bonded) asbestos, like fibro sheets. You can only remove the asbestos contaminated dust or debris (ACD) associated with the removal of non-friable asbestos.
Please be aware that you can only apply for this licence if you are a person who conducts (or proposes to conduct) a business or undertaking.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
