Combustible Cladding Checklist

Are you searching for a Building Industry Professional around Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast or Ipswich for the Combustible Cladding Checklist?

The Safer Buildings Combustible Cladding Checklist is a three-part checklist that will help authorities identify buildings with a fire risk due to combustible cladding.

There is a good chance your building won’t be at risk but a check needs to be conducted for the safety of all.

The use of combustible cladding on buildings is a safety concern for all Queenslanders. Building owners & Body Corporates are responsible for ensuring the safety of occupants.

Non-Conforming Building Products (NCBPs) have the potential to cause serious helath and safety issues. NCBPs are building products and materials that are not safe, not of acceptable quality, do not meet Australian Standards, or are not fit for their intended purpose.

An Example Of Cladding That Needs To Be Checked

Buildings that are higher than two storeys, and built or refurbished since 1994, are the most likely to contain potentially combustible external cladding.  Buildings that match a certain usage type, height and size are classified as being “in-scope”.

In-scope buildings are the focus of the Safer Buildings Combustible Cladding Checklist that must be completed by building owners, with the help of a Building Industry Professional.

If you’re a unit owner in one of these buildings, it’s your body corporate’s responsibility to co-ordinate what needs to be done, and to complete the checklist for the whole building. When there are multiple owners of a private building, you may nominate 1 owner or engage an agent to act on behalf of all owners.

It is estimated that as many as 12 000 privately owned buildings are in-scope. 

The Combustible Cladding Checklist is seperated into 3 parts. Building owners may not have to complete all 3 parts. The answers to the checklist questions will determine if an owner is required to engage a building industry professional such as an All Suburbs Building Inspections inspector or if they will be instructed to exit the process after part 1. 

The deadline for part 1 passed on 29th March 2019.  If you failed to complete Part 1 prior to the deadline you were automatically progressed through to Part 2.

Those building owners instructed to participate in part 2, this includes those who failed to meet the deadline for part 1, are required to complete the Combustible Cladding Checklist Part 2. 

The deadline for Part 2 has been extended to 31st July 2019. Penalities will apply for those failing to meet this deadline.

Owners of buildings required to complete part 2 of the combustible cladding checklist will need to engage a Building Industry Professional to complete a Building Industry Professional Statement.

You may have a friend or contractor in the building industry but not all building industry members are qualified to assist building owners with their requirements under Part 2 of the Safer Buildings Combustible Cladding Checklist.

Note: Your property manager is not a Building Industry Professional.

A Building Industry Professional as defined in the Building Regulation 2006 is any of the following:

  • QBCC Builder Open Licensee
  • Building Certifier Level 1
  • Architect
  • Registered Engineer – Civil or Fire or Structural

A Building Industry Professional will need to come to your building and conduct an inspection that will enable them to complete the Building Industry Professional Statement (aka Form 34).

It is expected only a small number of buildings completing Part 2 will be required to continue to Part 3.

All Suburbs Building Inspections has a team of Building Industry Professionals that are not only fully qualified, licensed and insured building inspectors and building consultants but are ready and willing to help you comply with the Combustible Cladding Checklist Part 2.

Owners must complete the combustible cladding checklist (part 2) by 31 July 2019.
