This is a review required by regulation 35 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. The review examines whether the regulations have been, and continue to be, the most effective means of minimising asbestos exposure to workers and the public arising from work on buildings that contain asbestos. The purpose of a post implementation review is to evaluate the existing regulatory framework, rather than to examine government policy regarding asbestos.
