The Queensland Government is trying to address the problem of non-conforming products on the building and construction industry in the state with the introduction of a Bill.
The 2013 report from the Australian Industry Group (AIG) highlighted the issue, making it evident that action was needed.
The report found that the current regulatory system places too much responsibility on building certifiers at the point of installation. Now the state government is aiming to address this issue by introducing a Bill that places conformance obligations on all supply chain participants.
The Steering Committee of the Construction Product Alliance (CPA) welcomed the Bill saying it was clear the state government was taking their concerns into consideration.
