What Happens Next

Once the Inquiry has undertaken a range of interviews, meetings, public forums and received submissions there will be a period of analysis, and a final report with recommendations is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.

The Inquiry is strongly focused on ensuring EQC is ready for future events and it works effectively with claimants and others. The future-focused findings and recommendations of the Inquiry will be reported to Governor-General Dame Patsy Reddy, and then presented to the Government.
