Victorian Statewide Cladding Audit

The VBA is leading the Victorian Statewide Cladding Audit on behalf of the Victorian Government.

In 2017 the Victorian Government established a Victorian Cladding Taskforce to investigate and address the use of non-compliant building materials in Victoria. The Statewide Cladding Audit was established following the recommendations of this taskforce.

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.

Since its origin, the taskforce has conducted over 2,200 inspections.

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.
