Licence Renewal Preparation Service

If you are a licensed member, full contracting, scaffolding or equipment maintenance business, ARCA can support you in preparing for your licence renewal application.

Being fully prepared to make an asbestos licence renewal application is vital, as shortfalls, such as sending too much or too little evidence, could delay the licence renewal process.

Also, apply as soon as possible so a licence is renewed before it expires, so not interrupting work being carried out.

With over10 years of supporting licensed members’ preparation for their licence renewal assessment, ARCA continues to support member’s preparations.

  • ARCA offers a one-day review meeting with the organisation’s senior management team. At this meeting (can be arranged via Zoom) previous HSE’s ASB4 assessment reporting form and HSG65 will be used as reference points in preparation for licence renewal application. The organisation’s management would be responsible for taking notes throughout the meeting for compiling an action plan. £450 +vat 


Support meetingARCA does advise that these reviews are carried out six to twelve months prior to a licence renewal application. This enables improvements to be put into place and progress to be monitored, so providing evidence in readiness for an application.

This member service covers, the way an application is assessed by HSE, that is the subjects examined, and the type and amount of evidence that could be used to provide HSE with confidence.

If required, ARCA would carry out an in-depth review of the organisation’s management and arrangements and examine a sample of projects. Performance history would be analysed, for example, audit reports give a good indication of performance

Members can draw on the knowledge from ARCA’s team of experts in asbestos, auditing and regulatory requirements, together with former HSE inspector’s experience.
