The import, sale, storage and use of products containing asbestos was banned Australia wide from the 31st of December 2003. This historic action by the Australian government was in response to the discovery of deadly health risks associated with the inhalation of asbestos dust and fibres.

Asbestos products were used in commercial, industrial and residential properties extensively between the 1920s and 1980s across the continent, and has been linked to a range of severe and potentially fatal health conditions, including:

Australia has some of the highest recorded rates of mesothelioma and asbestosis in the world, and there is currently no known cure for either disease.
