In South Australia, air monitoring is required for the removal of both friable and non-friable asbestos. The Code of Practice: How to Safely Remove Asbestos, on p 19 states that air monitoring is not required when removing more than 10sq m of non-friable asbestos. This is not the case in SA. Air monitoring is required when removing friable asbestos and designated quantities of non-friable asbestos.
