HSE Licence Renewal

ACAD was the first major trade association in the Licensed Asbestos Industry to offer a dedicated service to help our members prepare for their Licence renewal with the launch of the Pre Licence Renewal Assessment (PLRA).

During the PLRA our experienced team conduct a mock Licence interview with your senior management team who would traditionally have been involved in a face to face Licence renewal assessment and report any potential gaps or areas for improvement.

A PLRA is best conducted around six months prior to Licence expiry to give you time to rectify any issues or put in place new systems and is offered with two reporting options.

Electronic Licence Renewals

HSE wrote to Licence holders late 2018 to inform them they will be piloting a new approach to Licence renewals for those with licence expires on or after 1st April 2019.  The review via this method is more detailed and in greater depth than those previously conducted with a view to making renewal assessments clearer and more efficient process in the future.

To continue to support our members ACAD has developed our Electronic Licence Application Review.  This desktop review of your completed Licence renewal application offers suggestions for improvements to your answers and evidence base prior to submission to HSE.

ACAD also offers a range of useful guides and resources.  To access our recent special edition ACADemy article focussing on HSE Licence Renewal click here.

From our point of view the level of support from ACAD was excellent by way of dummy licence renewal assessment. During this process we went through 2 levels of assessment from the excellent and very knowledgeable assessor. Initially a full HSE type assessment was undertaken and points for consideration and improvement were logged. From this we were able to review some of our systems and areas for improvement prior to the second assessment. When ACAD returned the meeting went very well and improvements were evident during the process. With this support, subsequently our HSE renewal went exceptionally well with the ultimate reward of a 3 year licence. This has ensured we remain one of the market leaders and continue to work on some of the largest and most prestigious contracts.”
