5.2 Legislation

The legislation relevant to Asbestos is more developed in the industrialized countries than in the developing countries. With the example of Tunis, it was shown that in developing countries in some cases no legal norms of any kind exist. Furthermore, it is to be expected that such legal norms, where they exist, are not always obeyed to the desirable extent in developing countries.
