What is it and why is it required?
The Control of AsbestosAsbestos is the single greatest cause of work-related deaths in the UK1. Asbestos was extensively used in construction materials up until the late 1990s, and is present in a significant number of bu... at Work (CAW) Regulations, which were last updated in April 2012 in order to fully implement EU Directive 2009/148/EC, require employers and/or persons in control of premises to identify asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within the workplace and to implement suitable and sufficient management controls. Asbestos labelling provides a means of identifying asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) at source and helps prevent anyone from inadvertently disturbing them.
