Consultation description

This consultation seeks views on HSE’s revised approved code of practice “Managing and working with asbestos”.

The proposed draft consolidates the 2 existing approved codes of practice on asbestos (L127 “The management of asbestos in non-domestic premises” and L143 ”Work with materials containing asbestos”) into a single document.

The approved code of practice has been revised in response to Professor Löfstedt’s independent review of health and safety legislation ‘Reclaiming health and safety for all’. The consultation aims to establish if the changes make it easier for employers to understand and meet their legal obligations.
