The building gets inspected with samples taken and tested to identify any asbestos materials present in the areas you are working on and disturbing as part of the project.

πŸ§‘β€βš–οΈ The Asbestos (Prohibitions) (Amendment) Regulations 1999 came into force on the 24th of November 1999 and banned the importation and supply of all types of asbestos in the UK.
