Managing asbestos in or on soils

Guidance has been developed by the NSW Heads of Asbestos Coordinating Authorities (HACA) to provide general direction on the assessment and management of asbestos in soil. Managing asbestos in soil has implications for the current and future occupants of the land and any workers employed on the site.

The guidance applies principally to the legacy of poor historical on-site management of asbestos materials and not to the illegal disposal or landfilling of waste generated off-site.
