Coronavirus (COVID-19): If you need information about asbestos safety during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, please see our page here. If you need any general coronavirus information please see the Australian Government website. Asbestos related diseases also affect the respiratory system, just like coronavirus. If you have health concerns call your doctor or call the coronavirus hotline (24/7) - 1800 020 080.

Sampling and testing for asbestos

Goods can be tested before importation by an Australian laboratory or an accredited laboratory overseas to see if asbestos is present. For more information see the Australian Border Force's fact sheet: “Sampling goods for testing for the presence of asbestos.”

Testing products prior to shipments leaving the country of origin helps to prevent inadvertently importing asbestos into Australia. There have been cases of illegal asbestos imports resulting in the issuing of safety alerts and recalls.

The following Australian laboratories hold permits to import samples to test for asbestos prior to importation of the whole product. You can contact them directly to arrange sample testing of your product.
