The Control of Asbestos Regulations is a complex legal document that places many duties on both the employee and the employer. Coupled with this are the guidance documents issued by the HSE that cover the work undertaken by surveying organisations, analytical companies and asbestos removal firms.
Further guidance is available in more HSE publications on how asbestos should be managed and what procedures and policies you should have. Then there is all the industry specific documentation, UKAS publications, best practise etc.
