Consultation on proposals to amended CAR 2012

HSE is consulting on a proposal to change regulation 22 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012).

The change involves increasing the interval by one year with which licensed asbestos workers are required to attend for medical examination. In brief, those undertaking licensed work with asbestos would be required to undergo medical examination by an HSE-appointed doctor every three years.

The closing date for responses is Monday, 30 October 2017.

Details of the proposed amendment and how to respond may be found on HSE’s website
