Asbestos and Asbestos-Containing Materials

Asbestos and asbestos-containing materials

The Occupational Safety and Health Law, which sets standards for the safety and health of workers, regulates asbestos and materials containing asbestos because asbestos dust has caused mesothelioma and lung cancer in many workers. In accordance with the Law, importation of asbestos and asbestos-containing materials requires an import permit, and customs requires a copy of the import permit to be submitted.
