Available on demand

Free to view for members

Please note this session is also available as a 1 point formal CPD course here


This presentation guides you through the intent, obligations and process of new compliance documentation requirements for practitioners engaging with Class 2 builds in New South Wales. The Institute is offering this course as a proactive response to changes introduced on 1 July 2021 by the NSW Office of Fair Trading under the Design and Building Practitioners Act and Regulation, which seek both to restore consumer confidence in apartment construction, and to safeguard practitioners by improving compliance documentation and declaration practices.


This presentation is equivalent to 1 hour/point of informal CPD.

She has significant experience in successfully leading teams from master planning and concept design through to contract documentation and construction on complex large projects in the Defence and Infrastructure sector.
