Second review of the Premises Standards 2010:

The Premises Standards are reviewed every 5 years and this is the second review.

The purpose of the Premises Standards is to make sure people living with a disability and their family members, carers and friends have equal access to public buildings and that building certifiers, developers and managers fulfil their responsibilities to people with disabilities under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992

The National Construction Code contains these Standards. The code makes access requirements mandatory, and state and territory regulators can enforce them. The Australian Human Rights Commission can also investigate and resolve complaints of unlawful discrimination on disability grounds.

The consultation is in the discovery phase.

Are you affected by the Premises Standards? Are the Standards working as intended and where could they be improved? You can make a submission by writing a letter, phone, uploading a video, or respond to an online survey.
