Fire performance of external walls and cladding
At its meeting on 19 February 2016, the Building Ministers’ Forum agreed to the development and implementation of a range of measures to help address risks associated with high risk cladding products on high rise buildings. This included a National Advisory Note on the subject.
The ABCB has updated this Advisory Note to reflect changes made in NCC 2019, which was adopted by States and Territories on 1 May 2019. This Advisory Note provides guidance on the application of Deemed-to-Satisfy Provisions relating to the fire performance of external walls (including cladding products of external walls) of buildings of Type A and Type B construction.
