ACAD (Asbestos Control and Abatement Division)

We are a UK-based trade association, who support and represent companies working throughout the Asbestos Industry. ACAD provides first class asbestos training and runs the CITB funded NVQ assessment centres for the Asbestos Industry.

ACAD has been representing its members in the Asbestos Industry since 1993 when it was created by TICA as a not for profit trade association with a central aim of working to raise standards.

Through quality training and best practice, we are committed to ensuring a highly skilled workforce and an industry fully equipped to manage and safely eradicate the UK Asbestos legacy.

ACAD staff are based at The National Training Centre in Darlington. The administrative, training and assessment teams are supported by external advisors in HR and legal, accounts and communications. The ACAD Manager is Graham Warren.

ACAD aims to:

  • Improve overall Health & Safety standards within the industry by promoting best practice
  • Provide superior asbestos training and NVQ competence assessments to the industry
  • Provide accurate information and guidance to members and the wider industry

ACAD meets regularly with the Health & Safety Executive and represents membership views on all of their asbestos groups and committees including the Asbestos Leadership Council (ALC) and ALC Technical Working Group (TWG).

In addition ACAD works closely with many other organisations including Build UK, CSCS, CITB, BOHS, FAAM, NORAC, IATP, UKATA, SQA and NOCN.
