Identifying asbestos containing materials (ACMs): an overview of common ACMs

Access the resource ↗

As seen in the recent cases of Briggs v Drylined Homes Ltd and White v Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, the Courts can often place focus on the factual evidence with regards to potential ACMs encountered.

Our information sheet provides a brief overview of common ACMs found in the UK, some of their uses, and information that can assist in determining the likelihood of an ACM. The list is not exhaustive, and the information sheet is not designed to replace a duty holder’s responsibilities under regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

For further information, or to discuss ACMs with an expert, please contact us.
