Insurers warn of composite panel suspension impact

From Morning Report, 6:43 am on 27 July 2018

Insurers warn the suspension of CodeMark certificates for virtually all aluminium composite panels used on multi-storey buildings could affect cover. The suspension of the certificates was made public yesterday. The panels are related to but less combustible than the ones that fuelled the Grenfell Tower fire in London a year ago. Paul Hobbs from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment told RNZ reporter Phil Pennington the suspension does not mean the panels are dangerous.
