We review the Disability (Access to Premises—Buildings) Standards 2010 (Premises Standards) every 5 years to ensure they are working well. The rules ensure that new buildings, or new work on old buildings, provide the right levels of access for people with disability. The standards came into effect on 1 May 2011.

The review:

The government response agreed to:

  • implement 21 technical amendments
  • increase awareness of educational and training materials
  • establish a data framework
  • put in place a cohesive structure for progressing future reforms
