Testing Services

If you suspect asbestos containing materials (ACMs) at your property, the first step will be to have it tested to see whether or not it contains asbestos. Non-domestic/commercial premises are legally required to have an asbestos register in place, in accordance with Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012. This will usually involve having an Asbestos Management Survey undertaken, which includes sampling of all suspected ACMs in the premises.

How Is Asbestos Tested?

Step 1

When asbestos testing is requested, we will attend your property and carefully collect a sample of the material suspected of containing asbestos with minimal disturbance.

Step 2

We will also carry out an assessment of the condition of the material so we can help you make the right choices about the course of action to be taken if the sampled material does contain asbestos

Step 3

Samples are taken to our approved UKAS accredited laboratory and results are usually available within 48hrs, although this can be expedited if the results are urgent.
