UKAS is currently in the process of reviewing the membership and terms of reference for their Asbestos technical advisory committee (TAC). BMTA members with an interest in the asbestos sector are invited to nominate a BMTA representative to join the committee.
UKAS uses the TAC as an independent mechanism to provide advice, interpretation, clarification and expertise on technical and policy matters. Meetings are approximately three or four hours in duration and the asbestos committee hold these meetings twice a year.
Traditionally face to face meetings, and predominantly at UKAS’s Staines head office, these meetings are currently being conducted remotely via MS Teams calls and this is expected to continue for the foreseeable future.
More information on UKAS TACs can be found at https://www.ukas.com/about/our-structure/technical-committees/ which includes a list of all our TACs.
If you are interested in representing BMTA on this committee please contact the BMTA Secretariat in the first instance.
