Design and construction in cyclone affected regions - COAG Consultation Regulatory Impact Statement - ABCB
The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) is looking at options to reduce the risk of cyclone damage to buildings in cyclone affected regions. In this consultation Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) the ABCB considers options regarding regional boundaries and design requirements which could reduce the risk of damage to buildings.
The ABCB released this RIS for public consultation over 30 July to 10 September 2010. The information provided in the submissions received during consultation will help guide the development of the decision RIS and the Building Code. The ABCB will need to provide the OBPR with the decision RIS for approval before it decides on the proposed changes.
The OBPR has approved the consultation RIS.
