Asbestos Building Registers
An Asbestos building register is a comprehensive document that lists all identified – or assumed – Asbestos in a commercial building (including investment properties), public building or workplace.
By law, an Asbestos building register is required if:
- The building that was constructed BEFORE 31 December 2003
- Asbestos has been identified in the building
An Enviroscience Asbestos building register records:
- Any Asbestos that has been identified or is assumed to be present
- The date when the Asbestos was identified
- The location, type and condition of the Asbestos (including photos)
- If no Asbestos has been identified
The Asbestos Building Register is required to be held by the person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU)
Asbestos must be labelled, where possible. For example a label can be placed in the electrical meter box indicating that the building contains Asbestos and the location of the Asbestos building register.
All buildings that contain Asbestos require an Asbestos management plan

What is Asbestos? Asbestos is the generic term for a number of fibrous silicate minerals and was commonly mixed with cement to form building products. Until the mid-1980s, Asbestos was widely used in a range of commercial and home building materials. Asbestos becomes a health risk when Asbestos fibres are released into the air and breathed in, and is linked to Asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma.
