Changes to the Building Act 2004


The Building Act 2004 repealed the Building Act 1991 and introduced several new changes to the law governing building work. The changes were introduced in stages between 2005 and 2012.

The Act has been subject to many reviews and amendments since it was introduced. This was to make technical adjustments and introduce improvements in building controls for the sector. Whilst reading the act is important to take these amendments into account.
