An article on Abc.net recently highlighted the risk that Australians are being exposed to from asbestos in imported building materials.
The Asbestos Industry Association has warned that asbestos was discovered in cement compound board from China only two months ago.
Although tests done in Asia certified the material as “asbestos free”, when the Asbestos Industry Association tested the samples they discovered that chrysotile or white asbestos was present.
There have been concerns raised that new Australian buildings may contain asbestos and are therefore putting Australians at risk.
