In order to undertake a management survey of your building it is important to source a competent and qualified asbestos surveying company. EMS are UKAS accredited to ISO17020 for management level surveys. Our surveyors are all P402 qualified at a minimum.
A Management Survey is the standard visual and sampling survey. Its purpose is to locate, as far as reasonably practical, the presence and extent of any suspect asbestos containing materials (ACMs) in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to assess their condition. It is the minimum required standard under The Duty To Manage (link to Duty to Manage Page).
During a full management survey of the premises EMS will access all included areas. Management surveys can involve a combination of sampling to confirm asbestos is present or presuming asbestos to be present.
A management survey will include an assessment of the condition of the various ACMs and their ability to release fibres into the air if they are disturbed in some way. This ‘material’ risk assessment (MRA) will give a good initial guide to managing ACMs as it will identify the materials which will most readily release airborne fibres if they are disturbed. An assessment of the materials in their environment should also be undertaken.Request a quote
