Asbestos management assurance process (AMAP) user guide

Guidance to help schools and responsible bodies use the AMAP portal to submit an assurance declaration about compliance with asbestos regulations.



Accessing the AMAP portal

Schools and responsible bodies, who were unable to participate in the first collection, can use the AMAP portal to send school information and an assured response to the Department for Education.

AMAP process

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.

  • Responsible body: the main employer of staff at state-funded schools and academies.

  • 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.
