Code-compliant EAs now Available to View on FWBC Website

Redacted versions of registered enterprise agreements that have been assessed by FWBC as compliant with the Building Code 2013 are now available to view on the FWBC website.

In making this information available, FWBC aims to assist building industry participants who are currently considering enterprise agreements and wish to ensure they remain eligible to tender for Commonwealth funded building work.

On 13 May 2016 it was announced that FWBC would be responsible for assessing all enterprise agreements made on or after 18 May 2016 for compliance with the Building Code 2013.

Contractors who make or vary an enterprise agreement on or after this date will require an FWBC letter of compliance if they want to express interest in or tender for future Commonwealth funded building work.

Contractors covered by enterprise agreements that FWBC has assessed as inconsistent with the Building Code 2013 are ineligible to express interest in or tender for future Commonwealth funded building work.
