2014: Discussion paper and consultation
In February 2014 a discussion paper was released to frame the policies that could address issues in the certification of building works.
Following consultation, the Northern Territory Government determined to take a staged approach to building certification reform consisting broadly of:
- tranche 1 - creation of a three-tiered occupancy certification system
- tranche 2 - mechanisms to increase capacity within the building certification system
- tranche 3 - building a compliant culture.
