A prohibition notice has been issued after asbestos was discovered on a construction site in Sydney.
Tests discovered that fibrous building panels on the site contained asbestos.
The panels were imported from China containing chrysotile asbestos.
The panels had already been cut on site, the builder had to get a licensed asbestos removalist to remediate the site and remove the remaining asbestos panels.
This incident further highlights the danger of substandard, imported building materials being used across Australia. Find out more here.
