The NSW Government announced a crackdown on dodgy building certifiers, saying any corrupt certifiers would be barred from the industry.
The recent debacle involving Sydney’s Opal Tower, when a crack was discovered in a precast concrete panel inside the building, a full investigation was launched by government. Fears that the building was unstable prompted evacuation, at a time when the government is under pressure to ensure safety of buildings in Sydney.
Minister for Better Regulation Matt Kean warned dodgy certifiers that they will be found and have the book thrown at them.
Under a new disciplinary policy, corrupt certifiers will be immediately kicked out of the industry, Kean warned. Source: http://content.safetyculture.com.au/news/index.php/01/crackdown-dodgy-building-certifiers-way/#.XFgfQ80lHQV
