Asbestos Management Assurance Process (AMAP) User guide

This user guide will help you to use the AMAP online portal to submit an assurance declaration on your compliance with asbestos regulations.



The AMAP meets the department’s commitments set out in the March 2015 review of Asbestos Management in Schools, enhancing scrutiny on those responsible for managing asbestos in schools.

You are expected to complete the AMAP if you are a Responsible Body.

  • State-Funded Schools and Academies : maintained nursery schools, maintained schools (including primary, secondary and middle schools), maintained special schools and academy special schools, pupil referral units, academies and free schools and non-maintained special schools.

This guidance is for anyone who is responsible for the management of asbestos in the education estate and compliance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

All declarations must be completed by 12:00 midday 31 May 2018.
