Under Victorian Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) legislation and associated compliance codes, licences are required for asbestos removal work. There are two types of license for asbestos removal, Class A (friable and non-friable) and Class B (non-friable only). Note that OHS legislation permits an employer or self-employed person to conduct a limited amount of asbestos removal work without a licence in certain circumstances*.
