Grammar notes
When it is not possible to seal an ACM effectively and it is likely to release dust, it may be decided to remove it completely. Removal may be the most cost-effective solution in situations where the ACM may be disturbed frequently, eg during maintenance work. Depending on the circumstances, the asbestos removal may be complete or restricted to a small vulnerable area. Temporary repair, sealing or enclosure may be required to render the ACMs safe pending removal. When asbestos fire protection material is to be removed, it must be immediately replaced with materials having at least an equivalent fire performance.
