Do you carry out demolition activities that result in more than 10 m3 demolition waste? Or do you plan to remove asbestos? Then you must submit a demolition notification through the online service counter Omgevingsloket (in Dutch) before you begin demolition. You must inform your local authority both before and after removing asbestos.

  3. in most cases, the certified asbestos company must remove the asbestos
