Earlier this year, SCIA partnered with 35 other peak disability bodies and agencies to create the Building Better Homes Campaign working to secure long-term reform for mandatory accessibility standards within the National Building Code.

Yesterday it was announced that, because of the overwhelming support for building code changes, commonwealth, state and territory Building Ministers have agreed to include mandatory minimum accessibility standards within the National Construction Code – to Silver Level.

From September 2022, all new houses will be built to this new standard. If you like to know more about this campaign click the following:
