Report Writing for Asbestos Surveys P402RPT

Originally the P402RPT was a compulsory module within P402. However, P402 was revised in September 2014, and the requirement for you to submit two field reports for assessment as part of the qualification was removed. BOHS understood that some surveyors might wish to improve their report writing skills and gain formal recognition of these skills. As a result, BOHS introduced P402RPT as an optional module if you have completed the P402. 

Who is it for?

The P402RPT module is only available for those who have obtained the P402 – Surveying and Sampling Strategies for Asbestos in Buildings qualification. 


Not applicable 

How is it delivered?

If you wish to gain the P402RPT you will need to read BOHS Submission Guidance. This will inform you of the process for submitting your reports.
