Consultation on the draft Auditing and Compliance Publication Framework closes at 11:59PM AEDT Sunday 31 January 2021.

Recommendation 7 of the Building Confidence Report (BCR) is that each jurisdiction makes public its audit strategy for regulatory oversight of commercial building construction (defined as Class 2–9 buildings). This also includes annual reporting on audit findings and outcomes.

In response, the BCR Implementation Team has developed a draft Framework to guide building regulators on publishing auditing and compliance information. This is expected to increase industry compliance with the National Construction Code, and increase public confidence in the building industry. The draft Framework draws on input received from stakeholders during a 2020 survey relating to reporting on the auditing of commercial buildings.

Responses to questions on the draft framework, as outlined in the consultation form, are invited until 11:59PM AEDT Sunday 31 January 2021.
