About IBAS

The International Ban Asbestos Secretariat (IBAS) was established in 1999; it is an independent non-governmental organization which has two objectives: a worldwide ban on asbestos and jsutice for all asbestos victims. IBAS monitors, analyzes and disseminates news received from the ever-expanding network of individuals and groups involved in the international movement against asbestos, as well as information from legal, medical and industry sources. IBAS produces written material and organizes conferences to raise the profile of asbestos issues.

The work of IBAS is coordinated by Laurie Kazan-Allen; more information is available on the website:
