CLR Studies 7 is a book that aims to document, with a wide range of contributions written by outstanding experts, that asbestos is still carried around the globe and that there is no reason to lean back. The EU-wide ban is not the end of a hazardous story; it is one of the necessary steps to protect workers and citizens against the fatal consequences of the use of a mineral fibre that started as the eternal, global insulation champion. The ban needs to be complemented with pro-active inspection, identification and mapping of contamination. Training and qualification are decisive steps for a controlled and responsible phasing out of asbestos containing products. The fairy tale of 'safe handling' that still leads to import and use in the developing world has to stop.
