Who Developed The Draft Premises Standards?

The committee established to do this work was the Building Access Policy Committee (BAPC) which included representatives from the disability sector, design and building sector, property owners, certifiers and all levels of government.

In 2000 changes made to the DDA to allow for Access to Premises Standards and the then Government asked the ABCB to develop draft Premises Standards. The ABCB asked the BAPC to do the drafting.

In 2004 a draft Premises Standards and a Regulation Impact Statement were released for public comment and in 2005 following an assessment of the public comments on the draft and further negotiation the BAPC provided its report to the ABCB. This report included an account of differing views of what should be in the Premises Standards where agreement could not be reached.

Later in 2005 the ABCB provided its advice to the then Ministers along with its views on the issues BAPC could not agree on.

In 2006 ABCB provided further advice and a revised Regulation Impact Statement to the then Ministers.

In December 2008 the Attorney General and the Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research tabled a draft Disability (Access to Premises – Buildings) Standards which was referred to the House of Representatives Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee with a request that the Committee consult on the draft and report by the middle of 2009.
