Webinar Event - AS 3959 Changes & Update Following the 2019/2020 Bushfire Events - Session Two

About this Event 6 August 2021


With the aftermath of the 2019/2020 bushfire season now realised, what have we learnt from this experience and how is our bushfire legislation responding?

AIBS has teamed up with Colin Wood to provide you with findings on the bushfire losses emanating from the 2019/2020 bushfires, including what worked well and what needs more attention.  The Standards Committee has also been busy working on the review of AS3959 including a new and exciting project that is underway to develop a Maintenance Guideline to assist home-owners.

Colin Wood has been the AIBS National representative on AS3959 since 1995 and he is currently the Chair of the Construction sub-committee.  He also lectures in Building in Bushfire Prone Areas at Western Sydney University.  He is keen to provide members with an update on legislation in this space.  

This webinar will include the following;

  • What have we learnt from the 2019/2020 bushfires
  • How did AS 3959 stack up 
  • Changes to AS 3959 earmarked for Amendment 1 & 2
  • What changes have been earmarked by the Standards Committee for review and what further documents are being developed. 

A not to be missed Webinar event for building surveyors to ensure you are fully aware of the current requirements and what is in the pipeline for the future.
