An EW has been given stating that there is a risk of asbestos and therefore a delay so that testing can be undertaken to confirm if present and if proven further delay for disposal.
It was decided the best course of action would be to just assume asbestos present and continue with disposal to save on programme.
The contractor is requesting an instruction and CE however, I don’t believe this requires an instruction as there is no change to the Scope. This is purely risk mitigation and the outcome of the EW meeting.
Is an instruction required that they should proceed under the assumption that asbestos is present? And is this a CE?
