Clearance Procedures

  • FOUR STAGE ENCLOSURE CLEARANCE
  • NON-ENCLOSURE CLEARANCE

Our Field Technicians hold Asbestos Assessors Licences and are experienced in performing both clearance procedures. Their duty is to ensure that any area that has been exposed to asbestos is safe for reoccupation for the public.


FOUR STAGE ENCLOSURE CLEARANCE

Where friable asbestos has been removed within an encapsulation, a Four Stage Clearance must take place and a Certificate of Reoccupation must be issued. A Four Stage Clearance includes the following:

Stage 1: Preliminary check of site condition and work to be completed
Stage 2: A thorough visual inspection inside the enclosure/work area and ongoing control air motoring conducted
Stage 3: Clearance air monitoring placed and swab samples taken
Stage 4: Final assessment post-enclosure/work area dismantling. Where the above conditions are deemed adequate, an EIAG Field Technician will issue a Certificate of Reoccupation for the cleared area.


NON-ENCLOSURE CLEARANCE

Where asbestos has been removed without an encapsulation, a thorough visual inspection of the work area must take place. If our Field Technicians believe reassurance tape or swab sampling and/or reassurance Air Monitoring is necessary, they will conduct such procedures. Where the results of such testing and the visual inspection are adequate, an EIAG Field Technician will issue a Certificate of Reoccupation for the cleared area.
