The responsibility for complying with the duty to manage the potential risk remains yours if you are responsible for maintaining relevant parts of a building.

The duty requires you to manage the risk from asbestos by:

  • Finding out if asbestos is present
  • Assessing the condition of any ACM’s (asbestos containing materials)
  • Surveying and sampling for asbestos
  • Keeping a written record or register
  • Acting on your finding
  • Keeping your records up to date
