The NSW Government has introduced major legislative change which will pose far reaching
regulatory and enforcement implications for design and building practitioners.

Major events over the last 3-4 years have prompted legislative change in favour of increased compliance regulation and enforcement measures to protect consumers where there is a finding of building defects.

Central to these recent changes are two Acts:

Design & Building Practitioners Act 2020 (NSW)

The Act clarifies the accountabilities of design and building practitioners and regulates the accuracy of works in compliance with the Building Code of Australia ('BCA').
