A strategic review of the practice and use of asbestos registers in Australia

Date created: Date modified: 21 Feb 2018

The strategic review discussion paper is to help the agency better understand how organisations are responding to the legislative requirements, what the attitudes of organisations are to the maintenance of registers, how they use asbestos registers and what their drivers are for responding in the way they do. It appeared that while some organisations are simply meeting the minimum standard to fulfil the regulatory requirements, others are going well beyond the minimum standard.
