Combustible cladding regulations commence on Monday, 1 October 2018.

The Queensland Government has recently amended the Building Regulation 2006 (Building and Other Legislation Cladding Amendment Regulation 2018).  New laws commencing on Monday, 1 October 2018 require owners of particular class 2-9 buildings to register with the Queensland Government and participate in a three-stage ‘Safer Buildings’ process.

The Queensland Building and Construction Commission is the responsible authority and regulator of the process.
