The 2019-20 Business Plan comprises ABCB core business projects as well as several key pieces of work that have been identified as a priority by the Building Ministers' Forum. This includes the decision of the BMF to expand the remit of the ABCB for a limited period to accommodate the development of a National Framework for the consistent implementation of the Building Confidence Report’s (BCR) recommendations. This will be in addition to on-going analysis of key BMF policy directions and potential improvements to the technical content of the Code, with a vision towards NCC 2022 of improved building outcomes, increased confidence in the industry and public trust in the safety of buildings.
Other priority projects for 2019-20 include the development of out-of-cycle NCC amendment, implementation of a program of enhanced education, consultation and impact assessment on accessible housing and scoping work for amending the residential energy efficiency provisions.
