Read all about it - Latest draft Standards out for review

Back to ANZ Region



We have recently held discussions to collaborate with the Australian Building Codes Board and Property Council of Australia in relation to industry working groups, in particular for the planned updates to Section J, National Construction Code, due to be released in 2019.

We are very fortunate to have specialists within the CIBSE ANZ region volunteer network, who can make a difference.  Steven Mairs, CIBSE QLD Chair, most recently volunteered to assist with the Standards Australia's Technical Committee HE-017, Medical Gas Systems.  Please consult your local Chapter or Regional Chair if you have a particular specialism and would like to participate in future industry groups.

The following Building Services related Standard’s documents are currently available for public comment.  We encourage you to get involved and comment to improve the quality and technical content that will change engineering for tomorrow.
