The Asbestos Information Centre (AIC) is an independent organisation that provides advice on managing asbestos containing products in buildings to keep the fibre release to the minimum.
We are one of the few sites that is totally independent, we are not connected to lawyers, contractors, surveyors or any one else who might have a commercial interest in promoting the dangers of asbestos.
Because of this we do not receive funding from any commercial organisation, our only source of funding is from advertisers, who’s views are their own and not necessarily ours.
Our knowledge of asbestos containing building products is extensive but although we are aware of the use of asbestos containing products in gaskets, electrical goods and special filters this is not our area of expertise.
This is a UK site and so our advice is based on what we understand the UK law to be, the advice we give on how to manage and work with asbestos containing products, may not be applicable outside of the UK.
We are happy for our information to be used on a non commercial basis but if you wish to use it for commercial reasons we would ask that you contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can discuss a licensing agreement.
We regret that we cannot provide free advice via our e-mail address or telephone number.
The Asbestos Information Centre is probably the BEST place to advertise your asbestos web site, for removal, consultancy or advice; e-mail email@example.com for more information.
We have done our best to ensure that any information provided is accurate but it has been obtained from a number of different sources and so the Asbestos Information Centre can not be held responsible for any inaccuracies. If you do notice any inaccuracies please advise us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that they can be corrected. This web site is not a complete guide to the Health and Safety responsibilities when dealing with asbestos containing products. The information given is of a general nature and so does not address the specific circumstances of any particular situation.
