National Asbestos Exposure Register

The Australian Government created the National Asbestos Exposure Register (NAER) to record the details of members of the community who think that they may have been exposed to asbestos.

If you think that you may have been exposed to asbestos either during the course of your employment, at home or in the community, you can register your details by clicking on the link below and completing the form.

The purpose of the NAER is to make sure that there is a record of asbestos exposures and also so that the data gathered can be used to identify potential risks to members of the community.

All information contained within the register is kept confidential and details will not be released to a third party without your consent.

The agency strongly encourages you to use the online registration form, but if you cannot do this, please email enquiries@asbestossafety.gov.au to request a PDF form which you can fill out on your computer. You can then return the completed form to the agency by the same email address or fax it to: (02) 6204 2029.

Please note that this register is not linked to the Asbestos Response Taskforce. If your exposure/potential exposure is related to the loose-fill (Mr Fluffy) asbestos insulation (most commonly found in houses in the ACT and some areas of NSW), we advise that you register your details with the ACT Taskforce as well as with the NAER. This will make sure that you receive updates about what is happening and details of information sessions that the taskforce will be running.
