To All Stakeholders,
Further to Jim’s letter to you on the 28th September 2005, I would like to advise that we have received further information from Phil Davern, Municipal Building Surveyor for the Board, regarding changes to the Building Regulations; in particular retrofit of fire sprinklers.
Attached is an extract from the just released RIS on the new Building Regulations 2006. It contains the relevant section of the RIS just on fire sprinklers in accommodation buildings.
The Board will be considering this issue at their Board meeting of 20th January 2006 with a view to submit their comments on the proposed changes.
I would encourage all stakeholders to inform themselves of this issue and submit any comments direct to the Building Commission (Attention Dennis Hogan) PO Box 536E, Melbourne 3001; by close of business on the 17th February 2006.
