A NEW EVENT BY INFORMA AUSTRALIA | BOOK TODAY!

overview

In the wake of the 2014 Lacrosse Tower fire in Melbourne and more recently the tragic fire in London’s Grenfell Tower, federal, state, and local governments, regulators and industry bodies throughout Australia are faced with the urgent need for audits and testing of existing buildings for non-conforming building products. There are a number of unanswered questions around the need for new safety standards, a new system for compliance regulation and uncertainties around who pays for the replacement of non-conforming building products? This conference will look to address these issues and more.
