If you are responsible for maintaining any type of property that is over 8 years old with the exception of a domestic house , you must have an asbestos management plan by law. Failure to comply can result in:-
Closure of the premises Personal fines of up to £20,000 Disqualification from Directorship A custodial sentence
This may sound extreme but asbestos is potentially a very dangerous substance - currently in the UK, 3,500 people die each year as a result of exposure to asbestos.
In addition, many insurance companies may refuse to renew your policy unless you have identified any potential asbestos risks and developed an asbestos management plan.
