Management Survey:

The management survey is the standard survey. Its purpose survey is to locate the presence and extent of any asbestos containing materials (ACMs) in the premises, where reasonably practical, which could be damaged, or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation. Representative samples of materials suspected of containing asbestos are taken.

The samples are then analysed by a UKAS accredited laboratory and the results used to compile a register of the ACMs within the premises. The condition of each ACM is assessed and recommendations made regarding their management. This type of survey is used as a basis for producing an asbestos management plan.

Refurbishment and Demolition Survey:

A refurbishment and demolition survey is required before and refurbishment or demolition work is carried out. This type of survey is used to locate and describe, as far as reasonably practical, all ACMs in the area where refurbishment work will take place or the whole of the building if demolition is planned. The survey will be fully intrusive and involve destructive techniques, as necessary, to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to reach. A refurbishment or demolition survey may also be required in circumstances such as when intrusive maintenance and repair work will be carried out or for plant removal or dismantling.

Survey Re-inspection

In order to comply with regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulation 2012 (CAR 2012) ‘the duty to manage’ continual monitoring post asbestos survey is required at regular intervals. This is carried out in the form of an asbestos re-inspection. During this process all information within the asbestos register or survey report is updated to reflect the current status of asbestos containing materials.
This type of survey may also be carried out in order to update information which has been overlooked or not detailed, such as additional asbestos removal, surveys, or repair work.

Bulk Sampling

Although not strictly classed as an asbestos survey, this type of inspection and sampling procedure may be undertaken during instances where identification of a specific one off product is required.
All samples are analysed within a UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accredited laboratory to determine if asbestos fibres are present and of which type.
