The Australian Institute of Building Surveyors (AIBS) welcomes the report to the Building Minister’s Forum (BMF) by Professor Peter Shergold and Ms Bronwyn Weir. AIBS believes the report, ‘Building Confidence – Improving the effectiveness of compliance and enforcement systems for the building & construction industry across Australia’ presents a long overdue guide to much-needed reform of Australia’s building regulatory system. Modernisation of the system is crucial if the Australian public is to retain confidence that the built environment in which they live, work and play is safe and compliant with standards all Australians are entitled to expect.
AIBS has now responded formally to the Building Ministers Forum who commissioned this report.
The AIBS response can be found below.
