Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 06 Hansard (Thursday, 7 June 2018) . . Page.. 2225 ..

Any changes to that law affect the consistency of the systems between the two jurisdictions. Each jurisdiction is currently considering the report.

The timing for completing related reforms in the ACT program is dependent on any agreements for work at the national level or between jurisdictions. Because of this, the forward work plan does not include timing for the completion of 10 reforms that relate to security of payments and dispute resolution. However, I will update the plan with new timings for these reforms after I have had the chance to discuss the potential reforms with our colleagues in other jurisdictions and at the next building ministers’ forum meeting.

While we are participating in a range of national work on building compliance, we are not proposing any further delay in implementing our reform program as a result of this work. As I noted previously, our immediate priorities are: new licence examinations for new class A, B and C builder licence applications; minimum documentation requirements for new building approval applications; codes of practice for builders and building certifiers; continuing work on the new auditing system for building approvals and building work; and training for building surveyors and other people in the building industry. Work in the 2018-19 year will complete another 15 of the reforms.

The government will publish updates on progress in delivering any outstanding actions every six months until the reform program is complete. We will also continue working with industry and community stakeholders to implement the remaining reforms from the improving the ACT building regulatory system review. I thank the Assembly for its support of these reforms.
