New Categories of Building and Demolition Work Director’s Determination

The Building Act 2016 (the Act) provides a risk-based framework when undertaking building or demolition work. It provides for the Director of Building Control to determine categories of work subject to a range of regulatory controls.

The new Director’s Determination – Categories of Building and Demolition specifies the types of building or demolition work categorised as either Low Risk, Notifiable Work or permit Work; and the persons who may perform those types of work.

This Determination replaces the previous The Director’s Determination – Categories of Building and Demolition Work Version 1.3 dated 1 July 2017.

The Determination, Register of Key Changes and Index are now available on the CBOS website Determinations page.
