Ministerial Building Standards
19 March 2019
The new Plannning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 has introduced a number of changes to the way that building and construction is to be undertaken in South Australia, including the conversion of Ministerial Building Specifications to Ministerial Building Standards.
The new Ministerial Building Standards seek to improve the quality and safety of building work across the state and provide clearer building rules under the National Construction Code.
The first five Standards are now on consultation and all building professionals are encouraged to provide their feedback by Friday 26 April 2019. Additional Standards will be released on consultation in due course.
