Licensed asbestos assessors (or a competent person) may do the following tasks:

  • air monitoring during asbestos removal work
  • clearance inspections for asbestos removal work
  • issue clearance certificates for asbestos removal work

Asbestos assessors can also carry out other tasks, including identifying asbestos and carrying out a risk assessment.

Unlike Class A and B asbestos removal licences, asbestos assessor licences are granted to individual people, not to PCBUs.

From 4 April 2018, only licenced assessors are permitted to carry out (assess) the above work for Class A asbestos removal.
