Does the Office of the PMCSA take precedence over the internationally peer reviewed recommendations of ESR?

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Simon Fleming to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Simon Fleming

Dear Andrew Little,

The Courts rely heavily on the scientific expertise of ESR. Megan Woods confirmed that ESR stand by their 2016 recommendations for acceptable levels of methamphetamine residues in property. The Tenancy Tribunal has recently advised that they will give precedence to the recommendation made in the Gluckman Meth Report, over those contained in NZS8510, which are based on the recommendations of ESR. What advice has been sought and what are the reasons the Minister believes the opinions of the Office of the PMCSA should take precedence over the internationally peer reviewed recommendations of ESR?

Yours faithfully,

Simon Fleming
Chairman
MTIANZ (Methamphetamine Testing Industry Association of New Zealand)

Unfortunately, it will not be possible to meet that time limit and we are therefore writing to notify you of an extension of the time to make our decision, to 19 December 2018.

This extension is necessary consultations is necessary to make a decision on your request are such that a proper response cannot reasonably be made within the original time limit.
