The Model Terms of Reference: Intra-jurisdictional building regulator coordination committee (the model Terms of Reference) was developed in response to recommendation 5 of the Building Confidence Report (BCR). The recommendation called for improved coordination and collaboration between building regulators with an enforcement role within each state. The model Terms of Reference is a tool jurisdictional governments can implement as one way to address the recommendation.

The model Terms of Reference was agreed by the ABCB in September 2020, noted by Building Ministers in November 2020, and provided to Building Regulators in December 2020 for their consideration and implementation, as appropriate.
