Defect Management - a useful guide for NSW
Written on the 16 January 2018 by Samantha Repice
Defect management can be a difficult process and there is often a great deal of confusion in ascertaining what is and what isn't a defect.
To assist you we have attached a guide to the NSW Standards and Tolerances.
We have summarised some common issues for your convenience. There are several other defects listed in the document which we highly recommend you read.
The Guide is not a legal document and is not intended to replace the relevant provisions of the Building Code of Australia or Australian Standards. The Guide is intended to provide the reader with an understanding of the tolerances that a building professional will consider in determining whether a building element has been installed/constructed to an acceptable standard. The Guide should be regarded as an advisory resource rather than a series of prescriptive definitions.
