NSW Government Releases Discussion Paper on Building Regulations Reforms

The NSW Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation, Kevin Anderson, has released a discussion paper called Building Stronger Foundations which outlines proposed reforms to the building industry. The implementation of the Shergold-Weir report recommendations is at the core of the paper.

Key elements are compliance with the BCA of all building design and construction plans, registration of key building practitioners (designers, architects & engineers), appointment of a Building Commissioner and an industry wide duty of care to home owners.

You can access the Discussion Paper here.

HIA is developing a submission in response to the discussion paper on behalf of members. Any feedback on the Paper would be much appreciated and can be emailed to b.armitage@hia.com.au.
