The Victorian Government is expected to establish the Victorian Asbestos Eradication Agency (VAEA) by the end of 2016.

The government announced the agency which will plan and advise the government about the removal of asbestos in government buildings especially to minimize the threat of asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma and asbestosis.

The agency was announced recently by Minister for Finance Robin Scott.

The agency will create a register of asbestos contaminated Victorian government buildings and ensure the safe removal is prioritised.
