Consultation on proposals to review HSE's Approved Codes of Practice

Hazardous substances - lead

L132 - Control of lead at work (Third edition)

Proposal:  To update and revise this ACOP for publication by end-2014.

It is proposed that this ACOP is retained and amended to reflect changes to relevant legislation, remove material that duplicates guidance now made available on the HSE website and make it clearer what dutyholders can do to comply with legal requirements where required. 

If you also wish to comment on the proposal to introduce a limit on the length of ACOPs please remember to visit Section 3 of the consultation. After you have clicked 'Save these answers', click on the plus icon in the left-hand menu of this document to expand the menu and then select Section 3.
