I work for an independent plumbing and heating contractor and am aware of asbestos and its effects and my employer has provided us with some awareness training on what to look out for and how to safely remove it.

What concerns me is that some asbestos is licensable and should not be removed without notification to the HSE.

This is all well and good in the business market. What about if we are removing soil stacks and vents from private housing. Should we have samples analysed prior to removal and could this be notifiable under the regulations.
