As well as the main body of the asbestos report being a list of all the particles and individual parts that it has identified, there will often be other details also listed. These details can include the state or location of the asbestos containing materials found, whether it was disturbed or not and how it was located.

If possible you should also find out if any samples were tested and whether any findings were reported to the relevant authority or regulator.
The details contained in your asbestos report will vary and depending on the size of the area and the amount of asbestos contained will determine what information is given to you and what information needs to be reported to the relevant authorities. For smaller areas you could just get an address from where the asbestos was detected and the nearest control area. For larger sites you will need more detailed information including the date that the asbestos containing materials were first found, the quantity and the type of asbestos. If possible you should also get contact details for anyone who was a worker on the site at the time and anyone who had direct contact with the asbestos.
