Low Density Asbestos Board is Friable

The Qld State Government continues to insist that low density asbestos board is not friable despite other states and government bodies recognising that it is. I have seen and posted images of this material showing what it is like and it is definitely friable. The problem arises in removal when asbestos removalists  can cut the price of a job by saying it is non friable and only following procedures for non friable work rather than the safer friable asbestos procedures. A public homeowner is unlikely to know the difference and only see the big difference in price when choosing someone to remove their asbestos. I’ve seen how nasty the stuff is and I’d pay the extra dollars if it was in my house to get it removed properly!
