BRANZ. Welcome to BRANZ



  Assessing & Managing Asbestos in Soil

A collaboration between BRANZ and ALGA's NZ Asbestos Advisory Group (NZAAG)

The guidelines have been developed through actively engaging with WorkSafe New Zealand, Ministry for the Environment, Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, key regulators and various industry stakeholders between 2014 and 2017.

A limited number of hard copies are available for free. 


What's next:

  • The guidelines were launched on Monday 6th November 2017 in Hamilton. 
  • A collaborative research programme is proposed for the next 2-years following the release of these guidelines, to fill some of the remaining gaps in guidance and learnings to address any industry concerns. Please email Anne Duncan for more information.
