Bonded (Class B) asbestos is less immediately dangerous than Class A and is part of a fibre-cement product. The asbestos is in bonded sheets where it’s deeply embedded in a hardened matrix. The sheets may be flat, corrugated or tubular.
As per the Workplace Health and Safety Regulation 2011, an independent competent person is needed to undertake a clearance inspection and issue a clearance certificate following any Class 'B' asbestos removal jobs.
Friable ACM is any material that contains more than one percent asbestos by weight or area, depending on whether it is a bulk or sheet material and can be crumbled, pulverized, or reduced to powder by the pressure of an ordinary human hand.
