Building Regulatory Reform Summit 2018- Dr Drane Invited Speaker on Industry Decay

From the 21st to the 22nd of February 2018, a Building Regulatory Reform Summit was held in Canberra that brought together Australia’s leaders and strategists in building control to identify opportunities and weaknesses in the current building regulatory framework.

  Facilitated by the Building Products Innovation Council (BPIC) on behalf of the wider building industry, the Summit explored the views and concerns of over 40 government, industry and community organisations involved with or affected by the building control system.

‘The Summit was aimed at uncovering the inflection points where small tweaks could lead to big change, and conceiving mechanisms and new governance models that might produce a more consistent and effective national building control paradigm – regardless of differences in jurisdictional approaches or the amount of funding allocated to the administration of these systems. ‘ BPIC
