Description

WALGA invites you to attend a workshop to discuss the proposed reforms to the building approval process for single residential buildings in Western Australia.

The Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety – Building and Energy Division (Building and Energy) has released a Consultation Regulatory Impact Statement (CRIS) relating to proposed reforms to Western Australia’s regulatory framework for the building approval process for single residential buildings.

Within the CRIS, three options are proposed:
  • Retain the status quo (business as usual);
  • Implement full private certification of building approvals with all relevant recommendations of report titled, “Building Confidence - Improving the effectiveness of compliance and enforcement systems for the building and construction industry across Australia” (the Building Confidence Report); or;
  • Implement improvements to the current system of building approvals with relevant recommendations of the Building Confidence Report.

In order to prepare a representative submission before the public comment period closes on the 9 December, WALGA has arranged a workshop to discuss the CRIS in more detail with members.

For further information please email WALGA’s Policy Manager, Planning and Improvement Vanessa Jackson or call 9213 2064.
