Rules about how buildings must be constructed are set out in The National Construction Code (NCC) The Victorian Building Authority (VBA) is leading the Victorian Statewide Cladding Audit on behalf of the Victorian Government. The project’s focus is on reducing the fire safety risk of buildings found to have combustible cladding – such as expanded polystyrene or aluminium composite panels with a polyethylene core.

City of Whitehorse is actively working with the VBA to resolve cladding issues within the municipality.  Please refer to the VBA website for up to date information concerning cladding.
