Who we are

The Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency (ASEA) was established in 2013 to coordinate the implementation of the National Strategic Plan for Asbestos Management and Awareness (NSP). The NSP aims to prevent exposure to asbestos fibres in order to eliminate asbestos-related disease in Australia.

ASEA is a non-corporate entity under the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013. The chief executive officer is appointed under the Asbestos Safety and Eradication Act 2013 and performs functions in accordance with that Act. ASEA staff are engaged under the Public Service Act 1999.
