Dear Mr Smith

 

Our Ref:         FOI-1936-2122

 

Thank you for your request received on 26 November 2021 asking for a copy
of the asbestos report for Pimlico London Underground Station.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs) and our information
access policy. I can confirm we do hold the information you require.

 

Please find the requested information attached.

In public areas the vast majority of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs)
are contained behind station finishes and cannot be accessed by the
general public. Where areas of ACMs interface with the general public they
are in a position where they cause no risk to the general public or
staff. 

All stations accessed by the public and staff are re-inspected on a
periodic basis to ensure that no adverse damage has been caused to change
this status. If it is assessed and the status has changed for any reason,
then a risk assessment is undertaken which will result in either
encapsulation, encasement, or removal.

We have processes and procedures in place to ensure that the management of
asbestos is carried out in compliance with the Control of Asbestos
Regulations 2012.

 

In accordance with our obligations under Data Protection legislation some
personal data has been removed, as required by Regulation 13 of the EIRs.
This is because disclosure of this personal data would be a breach of the
legislation, specifically the first principle of Article 5 of the UK
General Data Protection Regulation which requires all processing of
personal data to be fair and lawful. It would not be fair to disclose this
personal information when the individuals have no expectation it would be
disclosed and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions which would make
the processing ‘fair’.

 

This exemption to the right of access to information is an absolute
exemption and not subject to an assessment of whether the public interest
favours use of the exemption.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some reason, please feel free to contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal.

 

Yours sincerely
