â€œA Matter of Whenâ€
More news has surfaced recently about what the Australian Government plans on doing about preventing the illegal usage of PE Cladding in Australia. Some insist that a stricter enforcement of the building codes will suffice in order to prevent the unlawful and unethical use of the black core composite panels; whilst others have proposed a complete ban on the importation of Polyethylene Cladding into Australia. This does not prevent however the PE Cladding produced within Australiaâ€™s borders.
Bill Shorten says â€œits a matter of when- not ifâ€ on the topic of another â€˜Grenfellâ€™ episode on Australian soil, he is one of those who believes in the complete ban altogether, however this has been rejected by the Federal Government, as not all usage of PE cladding is illegal. As highlighted by opposing Craig Laundry the Assistant Industry Minister, 100% Polyethylene cladding is already illegal on Australian high-rise buildings. Mr. Laundry also says the illegal cladding on Australian building will need to be replaced.
