The Compliance Declaration Scheme is the principal reform introduced by the recent Design and Building Practitioners Act 2020 that aims to raise quality and safety standards in the construction of new and existing apartment buildings.
From 1 July 2021, Builders, Designers, and Engineers working on NCC Class 2 buildings (residential apartment buildings) in NSW must be registered and provide declarations that their buildings are designed and constructed in accordance with the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and other industry standards.
For assistance or clarification around your obligations under the new compliance & registration regime, please don’t hesitate to reach out via the contact links below, or directly through the chat feature on this page.
