Asbestos Testing and Identification - NSW

All sampling and testing of asbestos containing materials are analysed and identified in the Sydney SWE in-house laboratory that is accredited by the National Association of Testing Authorities, Australia (NATA). We can perform sampling and testing of soils, building materials and air for the presence of asbestos fibres.


Asbestos materials can be submitted to SWE for laboratory analysis to confirm whether or not the material contains asbestos fibres.

To have a sample of suspected building material such as fibro sheeting, vinyl tiles, asbestos cement roof sheeting, soil or any other type of asbestos containing materials tested for asbestos in the Sydney Laboratory, please follow the below simple steps:
