PROPERTY MANAGEMENT 45 Part 8). Although many domestic premises contain ACM, they are unlikely to have a register of ACM for reference. Accordingly, before commencing any work in domestic premises, precautions should be taken to identify the likelihood that ACM are present. Although particular caution needs to be taken when working on buildings built prior to 1990, recycled materials in later buildings may also contain asbestos.” Prior to any works being undertaken on the domestic property, precautions must be taken to identify any asbestos-containing materials. This means that each and every person undertaking work on domestic properties must undertake an audit to identify if any asbestos materials are present in the area of work. If the body corporate has an asbestos audit completed by a professional competent person, then the report can be used by all contractors who perform work on the complex.
