The purpose of a management survey is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, any materials suspected of containing asbestos, and to assess their condition. This usually involves sampling and analysis of materials to confirm the presence or absence of asbestos.
Every Asbestos Management Survey report will include:
- record of the location, extent and product type of any presumed or known asbestos-containing material (with photograph evidence),
- information on the accessibility, condition and surface treatment of any presumed or known asbestos-containing material,
- record the asbestos type, either by collecting representative samples of suspect materials for laboratory identification or by making a presumption based on the product type and its appearance.
