AP(D) Service

AVM can assist your organisation by providing both longer and short-term interim decontamination Authorised Person (AP) Service from our pool of expert, qualified staff and contractors. We can come in, evaluate your site requirements, and help set up the necessary processes and documentation management to ensure compliance of your organisation. Then we can work with you to transition over to a self-sufficient operation, or we can continue to provide this service for you as long as required for.

Why Use an External AP?

Not all Estates and Facilities departments have decontamination specialists, and smaller organisations often have a decontamination requirement but do not need a full-time AP.

In some cases, a full-time position is needed or in place but recruitment periods or absences such as long-term illness or maternity leave, mean that a short-term solution is required.

Benefits of AVM AP(D) Services

Our APs ensure that your monitoring services (including certifications) are in order and provide you with face-to-face contact to provide guidance and advice where and when needed. 

  • Ensure compliance of your organisation or department

We also help identify trends, interpret reports and all this combines to ensure compliance of your organisation or department.
