The Asbestos Soil Test Kit will allow you to test your soil for the presence of asbestos which is often found in New Zealand residential soils as a result of previous renovations, alterations or demolition of buildings constructed with asbestos containing material (ACM) or from existing buildings containing ACM in poor condition. Click here for more information about asbestos.

What's in the Kit:

  • Sampling Instructions
  • Sample bag/s
  • Gloves
  • Sample Submission Form
  • Pre-Paid Sample Return Courier Bag
  • IANZ accredited laboratory analysis of your sample/s for the presence of asbestos including lab report
  • Professional assessment of your results from a qualified and experienced contaminated land specialist

Your assessment report will include the results of your analysis and will include suggestions for next steps and where to find more information if asbestos is identified.

If you don't already have the necessary PPE to safely take the sample for asbestos testing, then in addition to this test kit you will need an Sampling PPE Kit which is available separately here.

Please note: The asbestos test only provides a positive or negative result and does not provide the level of asbestos if it is found to be present.

This test kit and the report that you will receive is designed for personal use and cannot be used as evidence eg; for resource consent application. If a specialist contaminated land investigation is what you need, contact the team at EWB Consultants.

Turnaround time for test results:

You will receive your professional assessment report including laboratory results 5 working days from the date your soil sample is received by our office.
