Non-conforming Building Products: Institute Submission to Senate Inquiry

The increasing presence of non-conforming products and materials is a matter of concern to the Institute and dealing with it requires a multi-faceted approach, with public safety coming first and foremost.

The Institute has made a submission to the Senate Economics Reference Committee inquiry, outlining the important role that architects can play in mitigating risk in this area.

The submission also makes recommendations around the importation and sale of materials and products, certification and testing, regulating design, documentation and specification and regulation of project managers and other building practitioners.
