Registration of asbestos removal qualifications

  • Service
  • Nationwide
  • Public service

As the licensing authority, the Occupational Safety and Health Division of the Regional State Administrative Agency for Western and Inland Finland maintains a register of persons qualified to perform asbestos removal. The person’s name, date of birth, registration number and date of completion of the vocational qualification or its applicable part are saved to the register.

The register improves the monitoring work of occupational safety and health authorities and the promotion of occupational safety and health. The register provides reliable information on the number of qualified employees. The register can also be used to check the qualifications of asbestos removal workers in connection to occupational safety and health inspections.

The data concerning the data subject will be deleted from the register without delay at the data subject’s own request or after the licensing authority has been informed of the death of the data subject. The data subject cannot be removed from the register at the request of the employer who originally requested the registration of the person. Only the data subject has the prerequisites to assess whether it is still necessary for them to be registered after the employment relationship has ended, for example.

As a prerequisite for performing asbestos removal, the person must be registered in the register of persons qualified to perform asbestos removal.

Do the following

Fill in the form Registration request of asbestos removal qualifications. Attach a copy of the certificate of vocational qualifications or a certificate of completing partial qualifications to the registration request. Submit the registration request and its appendices to the Occupational Safety and Health Division of the Regional State Administrative Agency for Western and Inland Finland.

Asbestos removal can only be performed after the person qualified for the work has been entered in the register of the licensing authority. The data on persons qualified for asbestos removal is entered in the register within two working days of the arrival of the registration request.

To whom and on what terms

Asbestos removal can only be performed and managed by employees who have acceptable qualifications in asbestos removal. The qualification requirement for asbestos removal workers and managers is a suitable vocational qualification or its part.

The service is free of charge.
