           (iii) the implementation of the Regulations for Prohibition of the Use, Manufacturing, Import and Export of Asbestos                   and Asbestos-containing Materials, 2007;

     (b) where asbestos-containing materials have been identified in the inventory of asbestos in place, a specific procedure            which will, as far as is reasonably practicable, reduce the risk of exposure of employees, as well as incidental                          asbestos exposure, for the following scenarios-

           (i) Incidents;

           (ii) emergencies;

           (iii) removal work; and (iv) repair work; and

    (c) a policy, procedure and implementation plan for phasing out existing asbestos-containing materials at the                               workplace, which considers the following:

           (i) The principle of 'reasonably practicable'; and

           (ii) reasons for decisions.


(3) The employer or self-employed person must review and, if necessary, revise the asbestos management plan at                      intervals not exceeding eight years or if any information contemplated in subregulation (2) changes.
