Quakes Royal Commission Completes Delivery of Final Report

The Canterbury Earthquakes Royal Commission has today completed its inquiry by delivering the third and final part of its final report to the Governor-General.

Part three, which consists of the last three of a total of seven volumes for the full report, contains the results of the Commission’s investigation into the collapse of the CTV building which claimed 115 lives in the 22 February 2011 earthquake.

It also deals with roles and responsibilities in the building sector including the assessment of buildings after earthquakes, the training of civil engineers and the organisation and regulation of the engineering profession, the building consent process and local government management of earthquake risk.

The Commission does not determine legal rights and liabilities. Its recommendations are not binding on the Government.

The Governor-General will provide the report to the Government. It is the Government’s decision as to how and when the report is released.

The Commission will not be making any further comment about the contents of the final report.
