The Register

The ACT Government is required under the Dangerous Substances Act 2004 (the Act) to maintain a register of residential premises that contain or have contained loose fill asbestos insulation, known as the Affected Residential Premises Register (the Register). The Asbestos Response Taskforce (Taskforce) has responsibility for maintaining the Register. A subset of the Register (the List of 1024 properties) identifying only the address, block, section and division, was published in July 2015.

With many of the affected properties now demolished and new homes rebuilt, it is important that the community can easily identify any remaining affected property. This is particularly important for tradespeople and care providers working on or in an affected property. These workers are reminded to check the Register to identify if they will be working in an affected property, and encouraged to ask for a copy of the Asbestos Management Plan that will provide details of contamination within the property.

The Register identifies properties by division, block, section and unit numbers. It also includes the date the property was included on the Register and whether it has been acquired by the Territory. For convenience of use the Register also shows the accepted street address and alternative street address where applicable (such as corner blocks). Clarification can be made through actmapi.gov.au or the Taskforce on 13 22 81.

The Register will be updated monthly as properties are demolished and have met the deregistration requirements.

As at 31 July 2019

The full list of affected properties also remains available for reference purposes.

There can be a range of reactions to learning you may have lived in, worked on or in, or even visited an affected property. The ACT Chief Health Officer has advised that just because a person has been exposed to loose fill asbestos insulation does not mean they will necessarily develop an asbestos related medical condition.
