Asbestos in NZ Roofing

Once a valued product component, asbestos is now a well known serious health risk.

Presence of asbestos in roofing products in NZ can occur in some older, textured metal tiles.

RANZ has produced guidance on asbestos and non-asbestos textured metal tiles and whether a test is required, that is a WorkSafe recognised reference document - see RANZ guidance document at the link here.
