From May 2021 HSE will be seeking the views of a wide range of stakeholders about the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. This exercise is part of a second post implementation review (PIR) of the regulations, following the first PIR published in 2017.

The review will seek to establish if the regulations continue to meet their objectives, remain appropriate and are still the best means to minimise exposure to asbestos.

The exercise, using an online survey, will open in late May. Look out for further details next month.
