What Is A Division 6 Asbestos Audit?

A division 6 asbestos audit is legally required in workplaces prior to any demolition or refurbishment works where it is known to have asbestos or other hazardous materials. In order to complete a division 6 audit, destructive sampling is performed in all areas where the proposed works are to be carried out. Where there is no asbestos register in place, the current asbestos register is inadequate, or highlights inaccessible areas where asbestos may be present, a division 6 asbestos audit must also be undertaken prior to carrying out any works.

What is involved in a Division 6 Asbestos Audit?

Our asbestos and hazardous building materials assessment involves a visual assessment of a building in order to identify, as far as practicable:

  • The type and location of asbestos (ACM);
  • The type and location of synthetic mineral fibre products (SMF);
  • The likely containing capacitors in electrical fittings – Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) ;
  • The likely presence of the lead containing paint (LCP);
  • The likely presence of ozone depleting substances (OCD)

Upon completion of the audit, any samples taken for analysis are sent to a NATA approved laboratory in accordance with Work Health & Safety regulations. The results of this analysis are contained within the final audit report clearly identifying the type of the material. The final division 6 audit contains an asbestos & hazardous materials register and this register must be provided to any person engaged to carry out any building, demolition or refurbishment works on the site.
