Summary The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) has opened consultation on five of the new Ministerial Building Standards contained in the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016.

The new Planning, 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 to the department by Friday 26 April 2019.

For your convenience, a copy of the five new Standards can be accessed below:

If you are providing feedback, please provide a copy of your submission on the first five Standards to Stephen Smith, Director of Policy.
