What Is An Asbestos Management Survey?

An asbestos management survey is a detailed inspection and assessment conducted on a building or premises to identify the presence, type, condition, and scope of any asbestos containing materials (ACMs). A skilled and qualified surveyor who follows established guidelines, such as the Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) document HSG264, conducts the survey. The survey’s primary goal is to ensure compliance with asbestos laws and create an effective management plan.

Why Is An Asbestos Management Survey Necessary?

An asbestos management survey is required for several reasons. It helps to meet legal duties related to asbestos management and control. The survey helps building owners and managers create a plan for managing asbestos to keep occupants and workers safe by identifying and evaluating ACMs. The survey report provides valuable information about the lACMs, allowing for proper monitoring, maintenance, and, if needed, corrective action.

Who Should Conduct An Asbestos Management Survey?

A competent and qualified surveyor should always carry out an asbestos management survey. The surveyor must have the knowledge, skills, and experience to identify and assess asbestos-containing materials accurately. A competent surveyor will have relevant certifications and qualifications specific to asbestos surveying. They should know current regulations, guidelines, and the best practices for a thorough and reliable survey.

How Often Should An Asbestos Management Survey Be Carried Out?

The frequency of asbestos management surveys depends on various factors. Typically, a management survey should be updated at least every two years. However, certain circumstances may require more frequent surveys. For instance, if significant changes occur in the building’s structure or use, it is important to arrange a survey to identify any newly exposed ACMs. Regular inspections should also be done to monitor the condition of ACMs and ensure ongoing safety.

Can I Do A Management Survey Myself?

Only qualified professionals should conduct an asbestos management survey. Asbestos is hazardous; accurate identification and assessment require specialised knowledge and equipment. Hiring a qualified surveyor with the necessary training, experience, and certifications is crucial for a thorough and reliable survey.

What should I expect during an asbestos management survey?

During an asbestos management survey, the surveyor will carefully inspect all accessible areas of the building, including floors, ceilings, walls, and services such as heating and ventilation systems. They may collect samples of suspected materials for lab analysis. The surveyor will record their findings, take photographs, and note the condition of any identified ACMs. 

Are There Any Risks Associated With An Asbestos Management Survey?

An asbestos management survey carries minimal risks when a competent surveyor follows safety protocols. The surveyor will take necessary precautions to avoid disturbing any suspected ACMs during the inspection. Minor disruptions may be necessary to gain access to specific locations or gather samples.

What Should I Do If An Asbestos-Containing Material Is Found During The Survey?

If an asbestos-containing material is identified during the survey, it is essential to follow the advice provided by the surveyor in the report. Depending on the condition and location of the ACM, the surveyor may suggest various actions, such as labelling, encapsulating, or removing the material. Ensuring that the asbestos management plan addresses the identified ACMs and that qualified professionals carry out any corrective actions following established guidelines is crucial.


Unlike an Asbestos Refurbishment & Demolition Survey, an Asbestos Management Survey is non-intrusive and involves a visual inspection of accessible areas of the building, such as ceiling voids (the space between the internal roof and the ceiling), vertical risers and service ducts, without causing damage to the building.

What Happens After The Survey?

Following an asbestos management survey, the surveyor will provide a detailed report that outlines the findings. This report includes information on the location, condition, and extent of ACMs found in the building. Based on this information, an asbestos management plan is developed. The management plan includes procedures for ongoing monitoring, regular inspections, and necessary maintenance or removal. The plan should be reviewed and updated as required, ensuring it remains aligned with current regulations and best practices.

I reached out to AJC Environmental Ltd to obtain a quote for an asbestos management survey on a property we're buying. Aaron was exceedingly helpful from the off, and offered a great price, that beat most of the other quotes we got. Aaron booked it in within the same week, and provided an extensive report with pictures and sample results/certificate the next day. I'd highly reccomend this company to anyone looking for these types of surveys!

I needed an urgent asbestos report on a weekend for a property sale. Of the five companies I contacted only AJC Environmental came back to me offering an immediate appointment. Aaron was extremely punctual and professional, doing his job efficiently and quickly and producing his report later on the same day exactly as promised. I would not hesitate to recommend his company.

I contacted Aaron as we were in the later stages of buying our first home and had some concerns about asbestos in the property. Aaron answered all questions very promptly and was able to complete the asbestos management survey in less than a week which was much appreciated. He turned around the report fast too! As someone that did not know anything about asbestos Aaron was very professional and reassuring and spent the time going through things step by step. Would definitely recommend - very reasonable price too!
