Report into CTV building collapse due

2:47 pm on 10 December 2012

The results of the Canterbury Earthquakes Royal Commission investigation into the collapse of the CTV building in Christchurch will be released on Monday afternoon.

The third and final part of the commission's report examines the collapse of the building, which claimed 115 lives in the February 22, 2011 earthquake.

AAP reports it also deals with roles and responsibilities in the building sector, including building assessments after earthquakes, the training of civil engineers and the regulation of the engineering profession.

It looks at the building consent process and local government management of earthquake risk.

The first part of the report, which examined the PGC building collapse in which 18 people died, was released by the Government in August. It contained 70 technical recommendations.

Part two was released last week. It examined 21 other building failures which caused 42 deaths, and made recommendations about minimising the risk from earthquake-prone buildings.

The commission's rulings are not binding on the government.

The final part of the report was given to Governor-General Sir Jerry Mateparae last month. AAP reports the families were briefed on Sunday.

Deaths in the CTV building were also investigated by Coroner Gordon Matenga, who has reserved his ruling after an inquest which ended on Thursday.
