Interested parties are invited to send their comments by the due dates identified below via email to: email@example.com (include 'Warm Water' or 'Fixture Units' in the subject line).
Should you require your response (or part thereof) to be considered confidential, please mark the applicable part/s accordingly.
Comments for the Fixture Unit Ratings Discussion paper close 27 November 2015.
Comments for the Warm Water Systems Report close 11 December 2015.
The ABCB is considering whether the technical requirements for on-site gasfitting should be regulated under the National Construction Code (NCC). To do so would achieve one step further along the path to regulate all on-site construction activity under the NCC, and contribute to the objective of a seamless national economy as determined by the Council of Australian Governments.
Interested parties are encouraged to comment on this matter. Two documents are provided below to assist interested parties in formulating their views. First, the rationale for including on-site gasfitting in the NCC is assessed in Expanding the National Construction Code to include on-site Gasfitting. Second, details of the scoping of on-site gasfitting and how it could be included in the NCC is presented in Scope for a future on-site Gasfitting Code of Australia.
Interested parties are invited to send their comments to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 September 2015.
