ACAD Audits


We carry out audits of member sites, both planned, and unannounced. Audit performance forms a vital part of an organisation’s ACAD membership and helps improve standards in the asbestos industry.


ACAD’s team of auditors conduct inspections. As well as identifying areas for improvement, we celebrate members who go above and beyond current standard practice and who work to exemplary standards.

To recognise the efforts of ACAD members who demonstrate the very best standards, ACAD awards a Certificate in Excellence.

In addition, we hold an annual awards event to recognise the organisations which excel in our audit process.

The Excellence in Audit award goes to the organisation which has achieved the highest overall score during our site audits.

The Leading Best Practice award goes to the organisation which is exceeding the legal requirements and displaying the most aspirational standards in their work.

ACAD also offers a Pre Licence Renewal Assessment (PLRA). During this assessment our experienced team conduct a mock licence interview and report any potential gaps.

“From our point of view the level of support from ACAD was excellent by way of dummy licence renewal assessment. During this process we went through 2 levels of assessment from the excellent and very knowledgeable assessor. Initially a full HSE type assessment was undertaken and points for consideration and improvement were logged. From this we were able to review some of our systems and areas for improvement prior to the second assessment. When ACAD returned the meeting went very well and improvements were evident during the process. With this support, subsequently our HSE renewal went exceptionally well with the ultimate reward of a 3 year licence. This has ensured we remain one of the market leaders and continue to work on some of the largest and most prestigious contracts.” A recent PLRA applicant.
