The Building Regulations 2012 were amended on 8 February 2017 to introduce a transitional process for making streamlined applications under section 39 of the Building Act 2011 for seeking a declaration from the Building Commissioner for the non-application or modification of a bush fire building standard.
The Building Commissioner can only make a declaration when satisfied that the declaration would not increase the risk to people, property or the environment and that making the declaration is:
- in the public interest; or
- consistent with the purpose of any other written law or Commonwealth law.
