Scope

It outlines the issue and the processes BCAs should use to:                                            

  • identify building projects under construction that may be affected by non load-bearing timber
  • consider remedial options
  • confirm compliance of buildings where suspected non load-bearing timber may have been used.

The guidance focusses on the performance of the building and its compliance with the Building Code. It does not address contractual issues between the owner and contractor or supplier about whether the material specified and ordered has been supplied.
