About Safer Buildings

Safer Buildings is a three-part checklist that is helping the QBCC and building owners understand the extent of combustible cladding use in Queensland.

Queenslanders have the right to feel safe in the buildings where they live, work and play.

The Building and Other Legislation Cladding Amendment Regulation 2018 took effect in Queensland from 1 October 2018. Building owners are required to register their buildings and complete the combustible cladding checklist if the building is:

  • Privately-owned  (not owned by the State, Commonwealth or another State)
  • a class 2 to 9 building; and
  • of type A or B construction; and
  • for which a building development approval was given, after 1 January 1994 but before 1 October 2018, for building work to build the building or to alter the cladding on the ​building.
