In the Australian Capital Territory, it is a legal requirement that all asbestos removal work is carried out by a licensed asbestos removalist.

In all other states and territories an appropriately licensed asbestos removalist to be engaged unless you are removing less than 10 square metres of non-friable asbestos. Helia EHS recommend if you are removing less than 10 square metres of non-friable asbestos you engage a licensed removalist to undertake the work, or at least provide asbestos awareness training.

Helia EHS acknowledges that the model WHS Regulations has established two licences: Class A and Class B.
