Clearance inspections and certificates
As a licensed asbestos removalist, you must ensure that once the asbestos removal work has been completed that a clearance inspection is carried out, and a clearance certificate is issued in writing before the workplace or residential property can be re-occupied. Clearance inspections and clearance certificates must be carried out and issued by:
- an independent (link to definition) licensed asbestos assessor (link to definition), for work that must be carried out by a Class A licensed asbestos removalist
- an independent competent person (link to definition), for asbestos work that is not required to be carried out by a Class A licensed removalist (e.g. if removal work involved more than 10 square metres of non-friable asbestos).
