What is an asbestos re-inspection survey?
An asbestos re-inspection survey (also referred to as an annual asbestos re-inspection survey) is designed to allow the duty holder to monitor and record the condition of any previously identified asbestos products within a building.
Like any building material, asbestos-containing materials are also subject to potential damage and degradation. As an asbestos product degrades it can be more likely to become a hazard to health, therefore should be inspected at regular intervals to ensure its condition has not deteriorated.
For this type of survey to be undertaken, an existing asbestos survey or asbestos register should be in place.

Have you had any asbestos removed?
Most asbestos removal will be conducted by an asbestos removal contractor who self certifies that the asbestos has been removed in its entirety. Areas in which asbestos removal has taken place should also be included in the asbestos re-inspection survey by a certified, impartial, asbestos surveyor who can provide independent assurance that the asbestos containing materials have been fully removed.
If the area is to be reoccupied, asbestos air testing will be required to attain a clearance certificate.
Can I undertake the re-inspection survey myself?
The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR 2012) states that the team carrying out the survey must possess sufficient information, instruction and training to carry out the assessment. You need to ensure that the supplier you use is competent enough to trust with your asbestos risks so that you can be assured your team, building occupants and surrounding environment is protected from the harmful effects of asbestos.
Who should I commission to undertake my asbestos re-inspection survey?
In order to ensure that the risk associated with asbestos containing materials is assessed correctly, an asbestos survey holding specific certifications should be employed. Having a UKAS accredited asbestos consultancy undertake this inspection will ensure that you are provided with a clear report with necessary recommendations.
We will use the existing information to locate previously identified asbestos products and reassess its condition. The asbestos survey report can be accessed through our Cyber Essentials Certified online risk management portal NexGen will include new photographs of those materials together with a new recommendation on how to safely manage those materials.
Additionally, our clients can also benefit from a dedicated risk management consultant who will provide strategic asbestos management advice based on the recommendations from your report.
What are my responsibilities?
If you are the duty holder, you are required to manage your asbestos risks in line with the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012. Effectively managing your asbestos risks is imperative to protecting your building occupants,environment, and organisation from the risks of asbestos. Regular asbestos re-inspection surveys will ensure you remain compliant.Download a printable PDF of this page
