NBRB survey says 88% of buildings in cities are not compliant

The building sector regulator is considering declaring an amnesty period under which developers can comply with set standards. The decision is driven by the findings of a baseline survey conducted by the National Building Review Board showing 80 per cent of the structures in the eleven cities aren’t in compliance with the regulations. The board indicated at the release of the survey findings earlier today that they will embark on a study to establish the time frame it might take a developer to comply with the standards before declaring the window of amnesty.
