The new laws support the NSW Government’s commitment to restoring consumer confidence in the building industry.

NSW Building Commissioner David Chandler OAM said the new laws send a clear signal to the construction sector that sub-standard projects will not be tolerated.

“Our sights are set on the small percentage of industry players who aren’t doing the right thing. Whether you are a builder cutting corners, or a certifier passing work that isn’t good enough – expect action from our new team of inspectors,” Mr Chandler said.
