Asbestos Licensing is a permissioning regime. The Heath and Safety Executive (HSE) have issued a policy statement called Our approach to permissioning regimes. This states that permissioning regimes such as asbestos licensing are only considered where the work activities involve significant hazard, risk or public concern.
Asbestos is classified as a category 1 carcinogen, with asbestos related disease causing over 4000 deaths every year in the UK. Work with asbestos requires a high degree of regulatory control and the purpose of licensing is to achieve this.
See the Health and Safety Executive Licencing pages for more information.
