Calls for inquiry into false certification of steel mesh

From Nine To Noon, 9:09 am on 17 March 2016

The Home Owners and Buyers Association, HOBANZ, says a high level inquiry into the false certification of steel mesh by a major manufacturer is needed. Steel and Tube has for four years been selling earthquake-reinforcing mesh - wrongly certified as having been tested by a top laboratory, when in fact the mesh sold has been tested in-house. HOBANZ president John Gray says the revelations call into question the whole certification regime.
