Type 2 - Standard sampling, identification and assessment survey. Small samples of all materials
that are likely to contain asbestos are taken in a non- destructive manner from all reasonably accessible areas. Samples are

Type 3 - Full access sampling and identification survey that will include intrusion into
sealed voids, under floors, in ducts and enclosed spaces and all other more inaccessible areas. This type of survey is recommended

These results are compiled into a clear and easy to understand asbestos register which will give you
all the information you need to put together a management action plan to effectively deal with any instances of asbestos within
This register should be kept on site and be made available to anyone intending to carry out any sort of maintenance
or renovation work prior to them starting, so that they are aware of any asbestos containing materials and can plan the work
to conform with HSE regulations.
We will keep a copy of your register on file, monitor it periodically and advise you when any re-inspections are
required. We will also inform you of any new legislation relevant to your circumstances.
