Review of the Building and Construction Industry (Improving Productivity) Act 2016

Consultation

Closing date

On 2 December 2016, the Building and Construction Industry (Improving Productivity) Act 2016 (the BCIIP Act) was established. Section 119A(1) of the BCIIP Act provides for the review of the operation of the Act within 12 months after its commencement.

Mr Rex Deighton-Smith of Jaguar Consulting, a public policy expert, was engaged to undertake the review. Key building and construction industry stakeholders, including employer and employee organisations and government agencies, were consulted during the review.

The review found, among other matters, that the activities of the Australian Building and Construction Commission are consistent with its role as a full-service regulator for the building and construction industry, and the higher penalties applying to the sector should be retained.
