Estate Management provide and maintain a centralised asbestos inventory for University controlled buildings that is compliant to statutory and best practice guidance. This inventory is referred to as the University Asbestos Register.

The asbestos register must be consulted prior to all activity that might disturb the fabric of a building, and / or involve a buildings fixed plant and services. Such activity includes simple and short duration work, such as drilling a single hole or attaching items to walls, through to major refurbishments or demolition.


About the register

Estate Management is currently in the process of introducing a new online asbestos register system, namely Micad, and the existing online asbestos register system i.e. Asbestos Online, will be gradually phased out. However, until such time that the new online asbestos register is fully implemented, both systems will be utilised.

Both online asbestos registers are accessible via the internet and do not require the installation of specialist software.

Please note: until Asbestos Online is phased out; it will only be available to nominated Estate Management personnel. If you are directed to Asbestos Online and you are not an Estate Management employee, existing hard copy asbestos site registers must continue to be referred to, and / or the AIRF system used.

When fully implemented, the new asbestos register will be available via an online portal to nominated Estate Management personnel and to other University stakeholders e.g. persons within Departments who have local asbestos management responsibilities and / or persons with responsibility for coordinating local asbestos management arrangements.


Using and understanding the Micad Portal

A basic user guidance document has been created to support the use of the Micad Portal.

Reference to this guidance and frequent use of the Portal, will aid familiarisation, enhance/ reinforce the understanding of the system and its functionality
