In the wake of the devastation of the London Fire, NSW Fair Trading is taking action concerning non-compliant aluminium cladding. Such action will include legal reform to give effect to:
- Having a specialist unit conduct an audit with a view to issuing orders against owners of buildings to remove non-compliant aluminium cladding materials.
- Requiring annual fire safety statements to report on the existence of any such cladding.
- Prohibiting the supply of such materials into the state.
Bannermans Lawyers have written a useful checklist for those who are concerned that they may have non-compliant aluminium cladding inappropriately installed in their building.
