The clearance certificate must be in writing and must state that the assessor or competent person found no visible asbestos residue from asbestos removal work in the area, or in the vicinity of the area, where the work was carried out; and if air monitoring was carried out by the assessor as part of the clearance inspection, the airborne asbestos fibre level was less than 0.01 asbestos fibres/mL. For workplaces that are non-residential premises the person who commissions licensed asbestos removal work at a workplace must ensure that the asbestos inspection is carried out as per the above requirements. For workplaces that are residential premises the licensed asbestos removalist must ensure that the asbestos inspection is carried out as per the above requirements. If the asbestos clearance certificate has not been obtained, the asbestos removal work area cannot be re-occupied for normal use. Most local councils require an asbestos clearance certificate issued by an occupational hygienist following the removal of asbestos as part of the condition of local council development application.
