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 completing the below 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.
ACT loose-fill (Mr Fluffy) asbestos in residential housing
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.
NSW loose-fill asbestos in residential housing
If you think you have been exposed to NSW loose-fill asbestos you can use the NAER to register your details. You can also the visit the NSW Fair Trading loose-fill asbestos webpage for more information.
