Cladding Taskforce

An interagency Cladding Taskforce was established as part of the NSW Government’s action plan to address fire safety risks in relation to external combustible cladding on buildings.

The Taskforce is overseeing the implementation of the Government’s action plan.

The Cladding Taskforce comprises representatives from the Department of Finance, Services and Innovation (DFSI) including Fair Trading, the NSW Data Analytics Centre (DAC), the Department of Planning and Environment (DPE), Fire & Rescue NSW (FRNSW), the Office of Local Government (OLG), Treasury and the Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC).

One of the initiatives under the action plan is the implementation of the new laws that make it a requirement for owners of certain residential and public buildings to register their building on a NSW Government portal if the building has combustible cladding.

Further information and resources developed by the Taskforce are below.
