The NZ Guidelines for assessing and managing asbestos in soil are currently being considered for revision. This key document informs practice and regulatory expectations for the management of asbestos containing soil across New Zealand. 

Wasteminz’ Contaminated Land Management sector group has submitted to the invited scoping consultation and looks forward to working with the document owner (formerly BRANZ, now ALGA) to provide an improved document that improves certainty on this widespread and contentious issue.
