A report by Auditor General Colin Murphy has assessed how well the Building Commission regulates Western Australia’s residential building industry.

While for the most part a positive trend is evident, the report includes a number of recommendations to assist the Commission with improvements to its operations.

The audit has been a valuable, independent review of the regulation of builders and building surveyors since the introduction of new legislation in 2011. The findings will help the Building Commission to improve its delivery of service for the benefit of both the building industry and consumers.

The Auditor General’s report, Regulation of Builders and Building Surveyors (Report 12 – June 2016), is available on the Office of the Auditor General website at:
