Britain Reminds Employers: We're Serious About Asbestos

Great Britain's Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 were further strengthened April 6 with the requirement that anyone who certifies premises to be safe to be reoccupied after asbestos remediation must be accredited. The Health and Safety Executive, Britain's OSHA, reminded stakeholders April 13 of the new rule.

Regulation 20(4) of the regulations requires anyone who issues a site-clearance certificate to be accredited by an appropriate accreditation body as being competent to carry out such work. The site clearance certificate requires that premises where asbestos work has been carried out has been thoroughly cleaned and is safe for reuse. To demonstrate competence, they must conform to international standards ISO 17020 and ISO 17025.

The United Kingdom Accreditation Service is currently the only recognized accreditation body in Great Britain.
