The Validation and Innovation Point Asbestos (VIP) has issued positive advice to the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment about the RIONED method for the removal of drainage elements with asbestos-containing joint filler. The VIP has advised that the method be classified as risk class 1 and added to the SMA-rt web application (SMA-rt).
The Netherlands Labour Authority has assessed the advice as both practicable and enforceable. The Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment recently informed the VIP that it will adopt its advice. The Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment has asked Ascert (the SMA-rt manager) to add this change to SMA-rt.
