Asbestos clearance reports in Sydney

After any asbestos removal work in Sydney, you must have an asbestos clearance report issued. If you're planning renovations, your council will probably require this report before issuing a construction certificate. The asbestos clearance report (also known as an asbestos clearance certificate) confirms that asbestos containing materials have been removed and the area contains no asbestos contamination.

An asbestos clearance report verifies that the following steps have been taken:

  • Air monitoring for asbestos during removal works
  • Testing of settled dust samples in a NATA accredited laboratory
  • A visual inspection to ensure asbestos containing materials have been removed effectively

Why use Airsafe for clearance reports?

  • Airsafe has over 30 years’ experience dealing with asbestos. We know what we're doing and we get it right the first time.
  • We have good working relationships with all of Sydney's best asbestos removal contractors. .
  • We have full professional liability cover and NATA accreditation. An asbestos clearance report from Airsafe means no legal complications later on.
  • We can also offer air monitoring during asbestos removals. You can save on costs by booking us for air monitoring and a clearance inspection for the same job.

We often hear stories of Sydney councils rejecting clearance reports from less experienced asbestos consultants, who have tried to cut corners or save money by not sending sufficient samples for testing. You might think you'll save money by getting a cheap asbestos inspection, but in the long run it can cost you more, and delay construction further. It's much better to get it right the first time by talking to Airsafe.

From 1 July 2013, clearance reports for friable asbestos removal works must be done by a Licensed Asbestos Assessor. Airsafe has Licensed Asbestos Assessors available wherever you are in Sydney, so contact us to ensure you comply with your legal obligations.
