Industry Update: Building Commission NSW Now In Operation

Industry Update: Building Commission NSW Now In Operation

Building Commission NSW commenced operation on 1 December 2023 and is responsible for the oversight and regulation of the construction industry in NSW headed by David Chandler OAM.

This new single body incorporates the existing Office of the Building Commissioner as well as building and construction teams from NSW Fair Trading.

Functions such as inspections and compliance, licensing and complaints that were previously the role of NSW Fair Trading will now be the responsibility of Building Commission NSW. Ongoing development of building law reform in NSW will also form part of the work of the Commission.

The Building Commission NSW has expanded powers to conduct random inspections on sites without prior notice to ensure duty of care.

In addition to the changes in the NCC [National Construction Code] from May 1st , Rebilt welcomes any initiatives to the construction industry that make construction and renovation sites safer and more secure to visitors, tradespersons and occupants.

Rebilt kindly seeks cooperation from homeowners as our team manage issues of present-day compliances, safety issues, waste handling, rubbish removal, hazardous material management, temporary fencing installation and site security thereby avoiding unnecessary safety, hygiene hazards, project delays and cost over-runs.

In addition, new building product safety requirements for manufacturers, suppliers, importers, designers and tradespeople are expected to be implemented in 2025.
