Management Survey

An Asbestos management survey is undertaken to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any asbestos containing materials, which could be disturbed during a building’s everyday use.

The management survey will assess the condition of suspect materials, along with their ability to release fibres. This is classed as a material assessment and will enable the duty holder to assess the risk and put measures in place to reduce the risk.

A management survey should cover all areas within the building including, where present and accessible.
