How do Asbestos Surveys work?

Management survey is the standard survey. This survey is aimed at providing the duty holder with a register which can be used as a daily management tool.

Its purpose is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including
foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to assess their condition.

Management surveys will often involve minor intrusive work and some
disturbance. The survey will usually involve sampling and analysis to confirm the presence or
absence of ACMs. However a management survey can also involve presuming the
presence or absence of asbestos.
