If a building contains asbestos, a management plan must be in place to ensure that everyone using the building is protected against exposure to it. To assess such risks the asbestos must be located and its condition identified so that anyone who may have to work on, or near, the asbestos can understand where it is. The record of the asbestos present on the site is called the asbestos register.
