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:
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').
The Act makes provision for the active involvement of inspectors well before the completion of the building to investigate serious defects.
