Permits, notifications and forms concerning asbestos

Application for demolition of asbestos or materials containing asbestos

You must have a permit from the Swedish Work Environment Authority if you intend to demolish structures containing asbestos.

Applications must be submitted no later than five weeks prior to commencement of the demolition. You must also re-apply in the event of any company reorganisation or if your company is assigned a new organisation number.

Permits are not transferable. This means that you cannot use a permit that we have issued to another company for the same workplace.
