Watch his story, listen to his advice, and pay attention to his warning: protect yourself.


HSE proposals for 2013: review of Asbestos Approved Codes of Practice

14th Jan 2013

The proposals affect:

L127 – The management of asbestos in non-domestic premises L143 – Work with materials containing asbestos

The proposals are to consolidate these two ACOPs into a single revised ACOP (L143) to be published by end-2013. It is proposed that L143 is retained and revised to make it clearer what dutyholders can do to comply with legal requirements and to reflect the recent introduction of The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

Areas of change proposed are:

  • Material supporting Regulations 2, 3, 9 and 22 to be revised to reflect recent changes to the law on notification of certain non licensed work with asbestos and consequent arrangements for medical examinations for employees and record keeping.
  • Material supporting Regulation 10 to be simplified to help employers understand more clearly what they need to do in relation to providing information, instruction and training to employees.
  • Revisions to be made to reflect changes to the Control of Asbestos Regulations since they were introduced in 2006.

It is proposed that L127 on "duty to manage" is withdrawn and the material it contains is simplified and incorporated within L143.

These changes will bring all ACOP material in relation to working with asbestos together in one document. In addition, clarifying and simplifying the advice provided will make them more useable and understandable to better enable business to meet their legal obligations.


AS UK has consistently provided the highest quality service in terms of efficiency, cost and friendly, helpful customer service. Through my past experience with AS UK, I have always experienced a professional service and I would be more than happy to recommend them for any Asbestos matters.
