Resumen These Regulations revoke and replace the Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations 2002 (CIS 03-1029), and revoke and re-enact, with modifications, the Asbestos (Licensing) Regulations 1983 (CIS 83-1850) and the Asbestos (Prohibitions) Regulations 1992 (CIS 93-359, as amended by CIS 03-1518). They implement in Great Britain the provisions of Directives 76/769/EEC (CIS 92-22), 83/477/EEC (CIS 84-327), 90/394/EEC (CIS 90-1758) and 98/24/EC (CIS 98-1094), as modified. The main purpose of the Regulations is to protect workers who may be exposed to asbestos at work and other persons who may be affected by such work. They also impose duties on employees concerning their own protection from such exposure. The new control limit for all kinds of asbestos is set at 0.1f/cm3 of air averaged over a continuous period of 4h. Contents: interpretation; application; duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic premises; identification of the presence of asbestos; assessment of work which exposes employees to asbestos; plans of work; licencing of work with asbestos; notification of work with asbestos; information, instruction and training of workers; prevention or reduction of exposure to asbestos; use and maintenance of control measures; provision and cleaning of protective clothing; arrangements to deal with accidents, incidents and emergencies; duty to prevent or reduce the spreading of asbestos; cleanliness of premises and plant; designated areas; air monitoring; standards for air testing and site clearance certification; standards for analysis; health records and medical surveillance; washing and changing facilities; storage, distribution and labelling of raw asbestos and asbestos waste; prohibitions (basically, the importation, supply and use of asbestos and of any product to which asbestos has intentionally been added are banned).
