Asbestos Removal Visual Clearance Certificate

A clearance certificate is issued at the end of a removal to verify that the removal area is clear of visual asbestos. This certificate confirms that the hazard has been removed the area can be re-occupied.  

The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2017 require that duty holders organise a clearance certificate for each asbestos removal when.

  • More than 10m2 of non-friable asbestos is being removed.
  • For all friable asbestos removals.

The regulations further require that the certificate is issued by a competent person with pre-requisite knowledge of asbestos. Furthermore, the person issuing the clearance should be independent from the removalist.

  • You are the manager or duty holder organising an asbestos removal.
