Unfortunately, asbestos can be hidden almost anywhere.
Onsite auditing and sampling of materials in combination with fast turnaround times at our NATA accredited laboratory, assures that your imported goods can enter Australia as quickly as possible.
The media often report on importers and product suppliers who have received products from overseas that contain asbestos. You may have been advised the goods did not contain asbestos, or the goods were labelled asbestos-free. However, then they tested positive when checked by Australian Border Force. One reason for this is that many other countries don’t have the same strict regulations and compliance requirements as Australia. Producers might simply do be aware of potential issues.
Australian Border Force has become more vigilant with border protection and they are conducting more container and goods audits than ever.
Unfortunately, asbestos is a risk for importers, and we recommend being upfront and organise testing before Customs or Border Force issue a notice, penalties or fines.
Asbestos is found in various products from plasterboard, to car brake pads, various insulation products, electrical componentry, roof tiles or adhesives to fillers, and even crayons or make up.
The only way to assure your customers and consumers that an imported product is Asbestos free is to get it tested by a certified Asbestos Specialist in a NATA accredited Laboratory.Our certified Asbestos Assessors can assess your goods upon arrival in Australia at any port.
Furthermore, we are experienced assessing overseas production plants as well to audit the production process and facilities anywhere to be sure imported products will not contain asbestos.
