Asbestos Network Technical Working Group Offers Clear Guidance For Asbestos “Cleans” (Environmental Cleaning)

The 28th meeting of the Asbestos Network Technical Working Group (ANTWG), has produced a clear and concise document, detailing the terminology and scope involved with each type of asbestos related cleaning and removal activities.

The Technical Working Group which is comprised of HSE, BOHS, FAAM, ACAD, ARCA, UKATA and Independent Industry Representatives, met on the 12th February 2021 and put together this comprehensive PDF, to offer clear guidance for each type of asbestos related cleaning.

This document seeks to provide clarity of certain terms used in asbestos cleaning and removal activities. These terms include "environmental clean", "re-clean", and "pre-clean". The document also provides guidance on the application of these terms and their "licensing" position.
