Compliance on construction sites operation
Problems persist in the interior finishing sector

From November 1 to December 10, 2016, the Commission de la construction du Québec (CCQ) conducted a compliance operation in the interior finishing sector. Over the past three years, CCQ inspectors have observed infractions in 30 percent of their site visits where painting, plastering (e.g. joint pointing) as well as drywall panel installation were being performed. During the operation, this rate declined to 22 percent, an encouraging result but still twice the level observed for the construction industry overall.
