Building Code Compliance

What is Building Code Compliance?

A Building Code compliance or ‘By-Law compliance’ inspection, is an inspection of a building to determine on-going compliance with the building assessment provisions at the time it was built. A report will be compiled on any non-compliances so that the building can be bought back in line with the code. The report can also be used as a comparison between an old assessment and the current BCA-NCC as a ‘gap analysis’ for future building extension’s or upgrading works.

Why Do I Need a Building Code Compliance Inspection?

The Building Code of Australia (BCA) is a uniform set of technical provisions for the design and construction of buildings and other structures throughout Australia. The BCA is produced and maintained by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB), and given legal effect through the Building Act 1975.

The BCA is reviewed and amended each year to include various technical and regulatory changes. It is important to be aware of the primary changes that occur each year to ensure you price building work to comply with the code and to avoid contractual disputes.
