About the register

The Australian Government has created a register to record the details of members of the community who think they may have been exposed to asbestos.

The National Asbestos Exposure Register is managed by the Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency.

Online registration

If you think 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 'online registration form button' below and completing the form. 

National Asbestos Exposure Register online registration

The agency strongly encourages registrants to use the online registration form but if you cannot do this, please email to request a soft 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 to: (02) 6204 2029.

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

ACT loose-fill (Mr Fluffy) asbestos in residential housing

To identify that you have been affected either in ACT or NSW, simply access the online form from the link above and:

  • enter your year of first exposure (i.e. the year you first moved into the affected property)
  • select the duration you lived at this property from the drop down list
  • select Residential from the drop down list in the 'How were you exposed' question
  • select the most applicable option from the drop down list in the question 'If the exposure/potential exposure relates to loose-fill asbestos (Mr Fluffy) in residential housing which best describes your situation?' 

Please note that this register and the ACT Asbestos Response Taskforce register are not linked. If your exposure/potential exposure is related to the loose-fill (Mr Fluffy) asbestos insulation, you are encouraged to register your details with the ACT Taskforce to receive updates about what is happening and details of information sessions the taskforce will be running.
