How do the HSE enforce the asbestos regulations? Asbestos regulations are enforced by HSE, Local Authorities (LAs) and the Office of Rail and Road (ORR). 

LAs are the principle enforcing authority in: Retailing, Wholesale distribution, Warehousing,  Hotel and catering premises, Offices and the consumer/leisure industries

ORR is responsible for railway stations and depots and other rail premises. If there is extensive building or construction activity in premises normally enforced by LAs or ORR, HSE may become the enforcing authority for the duration of the construction work.
