There will be further consultation on any new regulation, which may include creating standard definitions of some common terms and requiring information on a party’s rights, obligations and statutory protections to accompany a contract for residential building work.

The amendments in this bill will help to implement reforms benefiting building owners and industry members with good practices. The amendments are complemented by administrative changes and increased education and information for all parties in the building process, from residential owners to large developers and from designers to those involved in construction and certification.

During my time as minister for planning, I have been encouraged by the support that I have received from many community and industry members to make lasting improvements to the building regulatory system. I thank them and the members here for their support of the bill and commend it to the Assembly.
