ABF NEWSROOM – ABF target asbestos in imported building products
ABF are targeting Asbestos in imported building products. The ABF expects importers to be able to demonstrate that they have undertaken adequate assessment for their goods that are known to be at risk of containing asbestos or are supplied from countries with asbestos-using industries.
Asbestos has been detected in building materials such as cement fibreboards and panels, pre-fabricated housing kits, cut stone, and tiles. Parts, components, and structural goods designed to resist heat or flammability may be of particular risk.
We work with our importers to ensure they have the necessary requirements met before shipment and can provide this evidence.
