Deadline for extension of time requests

Are you a building owner or agent who is yet to complete your obligations under Queensland’s Safer Buildings Program? 

Queensland’s Safer Buildings Program, administered by the Queensland Building Construction Commission (QBCC) provides building owners the necessary steps to identify the presence of combustible cladding and whether this represents a cladding fire risk to their building and its occupants.  
Owners of in-scope buildings have a responsibility to comply with the program by completing the combustible cladding checklist (Checklist). 

If you have outstanding obligations for a building engaged in part 3b of the Checklist you should know that Monday 5 April 2021 is the last day to submit an Extension of Compliance Period request - Form 31 before your obligations are due on 3 May 2021. 

Completing Queensland’s Safer Buildings Program in a timely manner is important to identify buildings affected by combustible cladding. Failure to do so is an offence and may result in regulatory action from the QBCC, including prosecution.
