Reforms for Building Industry Bring New Powers for VBA
Friday, 11 December 2015
The Andrews Government today announced a series of reforms that address long term issues within the legislative framework governing the building industry in Victoria. These reforms will significantly improve the ability the VBA has to regulate the industry.
The VBA CEO Prue Digby welcomed the reforms and said they will strengthen the protections afforded to consumers and ensure the quality of buildings across Victoria.
"The decision to empower the VBA to register, discipline, monitor and enforce compliance is an example of how these reforms will streamline processes and provide consumers and practitioners with greater security, confidence and certainty," said Ms Digby.
