On 6 November MBIE’s Chief Executive, David Smol responded to the Commission’s report. He apologised to the families of the victims and also announced he would commission an independent investigation to look at the implications of the report for him as an employer.

A final written report will be provided to the Chief Executive by 14 March 2013. This is an extension to the original deadline in the Terms of Reference of 28 February 2013.
