 ASBESTOS CHANGES AS OF 16 MAY 2014

Removing the requirement for applicants to nominate a supervisor to the WH regulator when applying for a class B asbestos removal license.

Removing the requirement for the B Class Asbestos Removal supervisors to complete CPCCBC4051A Supervise Asbestos Removal.

Specifying that when B Class removal work is being carried out by more than one person; a supervisor must be readily available.

The license holder must ensure the supervisor has the following credentials:

  1. Over 18 years of age
  2. Has a certificate in either the CPCCDE3014A Remove Non-friable Asbestos or CPCCDE3015A Remove Friable Asbestos
  3. Has a minimum of 12 months relevant industry experience.

This will provide more flexibility around who can do the clearance inspection for the B Class Asbestos removal.

  1. Certification in asbestos removal A Class or B Class have been added to the definition of a “competent person”
  2. The competent person can be either from an asbestos removal business providing they have not been directly involved in the asbestos removal work.

Providing additional requirements if a clearance certificate following the B Class removal work has been issued when it should not have been issued (i.e.: asbestos debris left on site).

If issued with an improvement or prohibitive notice directing the site clean-up by the licensed removalist must ensure there is a new clearance inspection conducted by another independent competent person.

The cost associated with the required clean-up and new clearance inspection cannot be imposed on the occupier / owner of the removal site.

 Please note:

For workplace buildings, an asbestos register is not required if the building was:

  1. Constructed after December 31 1989 (instead of December 2003)
  2. No asbestos has been identified at the work site
  3. No asbestos is likely to be present at the work site
  4. Clarification that asbestos registers are not required for domestic premises.
