The Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction today (Tuesday) began complaining of a lack of understanding about the law regarding construction rules by the public, especially to related construction sector.

The event gathered construction companies, architects and people from related fields at Sokha Hotel in Phnom Penh, where it is presenting a series of sessions on the law, including general regulations, construction permits and professional management in the construction business, as well as individual responsibility in the construction sector.

The law was promulgated by Royal Kram No Ns/RKM/1119/019 dated on November last 2019, and it generally takes about six months to be fully implemented.

The current law is composed of 22 chapters and 111 articles in total, which is intended to ensure, construction quality, security and safety.

Early this month, a seven-story under-construction building collapsed in the city of Kep province, killing 36 people and injuring another 23.

This tragedy happened about just seven months after a Chinese-owned unlicensed seven-storey building collapsed in Sihanoukville, killing 28 and injuring 26.
