Under the Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulations 2016, a PCBU (a company, sole trader, or self-employed person) is required to have an Asbestos Removal Licence issued by WorkSafe to legally remove more than 10m2 of non-friable asbestos (Class B).

NZQA accredited training is a prerequisite of the new licensing system for all workers and supervisors.
This interactive course is designed for anyone working on a site likely to contain Asbestos, or anyone who may be required to sample or remove any amount of Non-Friable Asbestos or Asbestos Containing Material (ACM). This includes builders, electricians, plumbers, drain layers and other trades.
