New Register to Address Non-Conformance Issues in Construction

house start

NATSPEC is a new organisation formed to evaluate whether a proposed substitute product meets Australian standards and has documented proof of doing so.

The organisation formed by government and industry bodies is being headed by Richard Choy who explained that the organisation was aimed at mitigating the risks posed by the large amount of non-conforming products.

This is an important issue, given that between 2006 and 2012, there were numerous reports of products that did not meet standards. Some of the products include copper pipe tubing, fire collars and glass sheets, structural steel bolts etc.
