In October of last year I requested National Building Control and Market Surveillance Office, in partnership with Donegal County Council and Geological Survey Ireland, to carry out an audit of all quarries in Donegal to evaluate relevant economic operators’ compliance with the Construction Products Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 when placing relevant construction products (aggregate concrete blocks and/or aggregates for use in concrete products) on the market.

I received a draft report of this audit in June and, on examination, some queries arose and additional information was sought from the authors of the report. I expect to receive the final report shortly and would propose to publish it once I have considered it.
