Calls for a national register for building products. The Building Industry Federation says there's an urgent need for a more robust way to prove a product meets the requirements of the building code.

The call comes as the CodeMark product certification scheme falters with three companies leaving.

How would a register work?  And could it help avoid another building industry crisis like leaky homes?
