The Royal Commission has published a discussion paper Roles and Responsibilities.

The Royal Commission is seeking contributions on any or all of the contents of the paper (here). The following is from the introduction to the paper:
This paper presents key issues that are faced by central and local government, the building and construction industry and other elements of the private sector when developing and enforcing legal and best practice requirements for buildings in earthquake events.
The Royal Commission, through its Terms of Reference, is required to make recommendations on:
the adequacy of legal and best-practice requirements for building design, construction, and maintenance insofar as those requirements apply to managing risks of building failure caused by earthquakes.
Respondents are asked to contribute views, evidence and well supported analysis on any or all of the topics documented in this paper in this context.
