Building Code 2016

2016 Building Code Compliance: Important Information for Stakeholders Tendering for Commonwealth Funded Building Work

The amendments to the Building and Construction Industry (Improving Productivity) Act 2016 on 17 February 2017 reduced the transition period for enterprise agreement content from two years to nine months. The new transition period concludes 31 August 2017. Importantly, companies with non-code compliant agreements can tender for, but not be awarded taxpayer-funded projects during this transition.

The Code amendments align the 2016 Code with those amendments to the Act and provide additional transitional exemptions to assist building contractors with the transition to compliance.
