Victorian Cladding Audit

The VBA is leading the Victorian Statewide Cladding Audit on behalf of the Victorian Government. The project’s focus is on reducing the fire safety risk of buildings found to have combustible cladding – such as expanded polystyrene or aluminium composite panels with a polyethylene core.

If the apartment building where you live is inspected as part of the project, you will receive a letter from the VBA. Building managers, building owners or owners’ corporations will also be contacted by the VBA prior to an inspection taking place.

Fire safety actions you can implement straight away are available below, and translated into 10 languages.

On 1 December 2017, the Victorian Cladding Taskforce issued an interim report on the non-compliant use of building materials in Victoria.

Recommended fire safety actions for residents, building owners, owners' corporations and facilities managers are outlined in a Taskforce advisory note.
