Useful Information For Contractors About Asbestos In Soil, Construction & Demolition Materials:

The Asbestos in Soil and Construction and Demolition Materials Joint Industry Working Group (JIWG for short) was established in November 2011 after The Environmental Industries Commission (EIC) and (CL:AIRE) Contaminated Land: Applications in Real Environments formally joined forces and then invited a wide range of both private and public sector organisations that are all looking to work together to meet the challenges posed by asbestos in soil.


The JIWG, Environment Agency and Health and Safety Executive have agreed to work together to bring clarification on a number of key regulatory and guidance issues that will help underpin the development of the industry code of practice for asbestos in soil, construction and demolition materials.


This work will help clarify a number of important issues relating to the application of some of the legislation as it is currently being applied to the regulation of asbestos in soil, construction and demolition materials.

As part of this work programme the JIWG has launched two decision support tools:


1. Categorisation of Work Activities involving Asbestos in Soil and Construction &   Demolition Materials in accordance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012,


2. Qualitative Risk Ranking of Work Activities and Receptors Involved in or Exposed to Asbestos in Soil and Construction & Demolition Materials 


These tools have been made freely available to industry practitioners in BETA format for the purpose of trialling their use on real-life situations.   

The JIWG have invited feedback from users on these versions on their applicability and validity to a wide range of scenarios that may be encountered when assessing the potential risk from and asbestos licensing status of work with asbestos and asbestos-containing materials in the ground.
