Building Commission Industry Bulletin 54 - External wall cladding – fire safety

Information status

All documents issued prior to 1 July 2017 were issued by the former Department of Commerce. Documents listed here are the latest versions available. For more information on this document, please contact

Fire safety concerns have been raised on the use of certain aluminium composite panels for external wall cladding where that product had not been tested or demonstrated to meet the requirements of the Building Code of Australia (BCA) for that use. Such products can lead to a rapid vertical spread of a fire via the façade of the building which raises serious safety concerns.
