Director of Trade Matthan Walter said the Government has taken steps to ban the importation of building materials which do not meet the minimum building codes.

Walter said the ban will take effect before the end of the month.

One such item which will be banned is the 26 gauge galvanize.

Walter spoke on DBS’s Talking Point on Thursday.


He said further that the Government will also find ways to deal with the inferior products which are already on the market.
