To work with asbestos in NSW, even naturally occurring asbestos, you require a licence. There are three different licences:
- Class A – licence to remove friable asbestos
- Class B – to remove non-friable asbestos
- Asbestos Assessor licence.
Only a business or someone operating as a business can apply for an asbestos removal licence.
All asbestos removal work must be carried out safely in accordance with health and safety legislation.
Find a licensed asbestos removalist or licensed assessor in your area.
