VBA Releases External Wall Cladding Audit Report

Thursday February 18 2016

The Victorian Building Authority (VBA) External Wall Cladding Audit has found Melburnians can continue to have confidence in the safety of the buildings they live in and use but that non-compliance in the use of external wall cladding materials is unacceptably high.

The VBA launched the Audit, the first of its kind in Australia, following a fire at the Lacrosse Apartments in Melbourne's Docklands in November 2014. In April 2015, the MFB Post Incident Analysis of the fire found that the use of non-compliant aluminium composite panelling (ACP) had contributed to the spread of the fire.
