The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 came into force on 6 April 2012;


The previous regulations in 2006 were updated to take account of the Europeans Commissions view that the UK had not fully implemented the EU directive on exposure to asbestos.

The Regulations Apply to:

•    All non-domestic buildings, whatever the type of business.
•    The common areas of domestic buildings, eg. halls, stairwells and lift shafts.
•    All other domestic properties that are not effected by the duty to manage.
