CAR-SOIL™ is described as "the authoritative document interpreting the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 ... as applied to working with ground materials contaminated by asbestos". Prepared with the support of the Health and Safety Executive, it presents guidance on how the legal requirements of CAR 2012 have been interpreted to apply to work with asbestos contaminated soil and C&D materials.
