The Validation and Innovation Point for Asbestos (VIP) has issued positive advice to the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment (SZW) about expanding the application domain for the FiberCover® working method. It concerns an addition to the product groups ‘Asbestos cement wall and cladding panel’ and ‘Asbestos cement flat board’. HMB Milieutechniek wants to add the fixing methods ‘Cemented/glued with battens’ and ‘Clamped with battens and/or brackets’ to the application domain for these product groups.

The Ministry has asked Ascert (the manager of the Substances Manager Asbestos Risk Technology, or SMA-rt for short) to make this change in SMA-rt.
