You require this licence if you intend to operate a business that removes more than 10 squares of non-friable (bonded) asbestos. Non-friable asbestos materials include asbestos cement sheeting, often called fibro, used in many Queensland buildings before 1990. The sheeting was used for cladding, roofs and fences and can often be found as backing boards in wet areas like kitchens and bathrooms. This licence does not authorise the removal of friable asbestos (class A asbestos removal work).
Where class B asbestos removal work is being carried out by more than one person, the licence holder must ensure a supervisor is readily available to the workers carrying out the asbestos removal work.
Holders of this licence must comply with the code of practice 'How to safely remove asbestos'.
