Greater Christchurch Regeneration Minister Megan Woods told Chris Lynch 15 hundred people still have unsettled claims.
She says the report highlights the grief and trauma from interactions between EQC and private insurers.
Some recommendations require legislative change which will happen under a full review of the EQC Act next year.
