Chinese supplied cladding comes with fake certificates

CHEATING Chinese building suppliers are forging safety certificates to get shonky products into apartment towers, a Senate inquiry has been warned.

Australian Competition and Consumer Commission boss Rod Sims is demanding new laws to protect homeowners, including independent checks on buildings and materials.
