Reform of Building Regulation

    The Productivity Commission's final research report, released December 2004, responds to a request by the Australian Government to examine the contribution that national reform of building regulation has made and further reform could make to the performance of the building and construction industry. The Commission found that the Australian Building Codes Board has made progress in reducing regulatory differences across jurisdictions and in basing the Building Code of Australia to performance-based requirements. However, there is scope for further reforms to enhance productivity and to benefit the broader community. The Commission recommends the Australian Government, as well as the State and Territory Governments, continue to be actively involved in reform of building regulation and to negotiate a new Intergovernmental Agreement. The agreement would clarify the objectives of building regulation reform; strengthen the commitment to national consistency; and also affirm the importance of a whole-of-government approach to building regulation.
