Licence requirements for removing asbestos

Since 1 January 2008, a bonded asbestos licence has been required in NSW to remove more than 10 square metres of bonded asbestos material.

Licences are regulated and administered by WorkCover NSW.


Failure to handle or dispose of asbestos appropriately is a serious health risk and can result in fines and clean-up costs.

Please remember to contact Council's Development Services Department on (03) 5453 3200 before beginning any repairs or renovations where you suspect asbestos may be present.
