You will need this licence if you intend to operate a business that carries out asbestos removal.
There are two categories of licence, depending on what kind of asbestos you want to remove:
- class A - friable asbestos and asbestos contaminated dust or debris
- class B - more than 10 square metres of non-friable asbestos.
All licence holders must ensure that workers carrying out asbestos removal under their licence hold the relevant certification.
Class A licence holders must ensure removal of all friable asbestos is directly supervised by a nominated supervisor. Class B licence holders must ensure a supervisor is readily available while removal of non-friable asbestos removal work is taking place.
