FAMANZ provides a professional home for practitioners providing services to the asbestos industry including: occupational hygienists, asbestos removal contractors, environmental consultants, asbestos assessors / surveyors, property managers, demolition contractors, recycling industry operators, disposal contractors, suppliers, and allied industries.

Our vision is to:

  1.  minimise exposures to airborne respirable asbestos fibres for workers and the general public in Australia and New Zealand.
  2. pursue excellence for all those who practise in the asbestos assessment, management, and abatement professions;
  3. establish, develop and maintain standards of competence in asbestos assessment, management, and abatement for those who are members of FAMANZ; and
  4. act as the guardian of professional standards and ethics in the profession of asbestos assessment, management, and abatement.

  • advance industry knowledge and understanding of asbestos assessment, management, and remediation;
