Asbestos is a naturally-occurring mineral fibre and up until the mid-1980s, Australia had one of the highest rates of asbestos use per person in the world.
Asbestos has not been used in building materials since the 1980s but it was not until 31 December, 2003 that asbestos and all products containing asbestos were banned throughout Australia. It is illegal to import, store, supply, sell, install, use or re-use these materials.
