Note.
 A building constructed before 1987 may contain asbestos. Businesses are licensed to undertake asbestos removal work under the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation 2001 (refer to Working with Asbestos: Guide 2008 (ISBN 0 7310 5159 9) published by the WorkCover Authority). If the work is not undertaken by a licensed contractor it should still be undertaken in a manner that minimises risks (refer to Fibro & Asbestos—A Renovator and Homeowner’s Guide at http://more.nsw.gov.au). Information on the removal and disposal of asbestos to landfill sites licensed to accept this waste is available from the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water.
