73 NTNER asbestos register

The Asbestos Register for the 73 NTNER Communities (“the Register”) came into operation in April 2010 and was last updated in July 2013. 

Since the introduction of the register, there have been significant developments impacting on the management of asbestos through the national Work Health and Safety legislation.

The Department of Infrastructure has ceased maintenance of this register. Information from the register will NOT be available after October 2015.
