THAT building owners are required to hold copies of all regulatory documentation?
And did you know that building owners in Victoria must provide regulatory compliance documentation histories for buildings to Building Surveyors within 7 days of request, but these documents have often never been sighted (or have been lost) by building owners and / or their Agents?
While this is a common issue, failure to hold regulatory documentation and poor record keeping typically results in significant non-compliances associated with both ongoing regulatory maintenance and ‘Management in Use’ requirements. The longer these non-compliances are left unattended, the more expensive they are to fix, and the further non-compliant they become.
If non compliance is linked to injury, then the building owner is seriously exposed to potential criminal investigation.
Now is a good time to catch up on this housekeeping.
To assist in addressing this issue, we provide State / Territory based:
- Desk top reviews of available regulatory documentation;
- Statutory documentation searches through relevant authorities;
- Gap analyses of available documentation and current maintenance and management regimes, together with recommended assessments and / or upgrades with the view to meeting compliance requirements;
- A database document management solution, purpose built for building owners and managers, with simple operational and search functions.
