Following the Australian Government released on the Review of the Disability (Access to Premises – Buildings) Standards 2010 (Premises Standards) Report and its Response to the Report on 3 March 2017, ACAA will be preparing a submission to lobby for the inclusion of Access Consultants in the process.
Michael Small will be coordinating ACAAs submission following a preliminary reconnaissance on the best strategy to target the appropriate government agencies and contacts. Following this a call of expression to members for assistance on the sub-committee will be made. This is an opportunity for ACAA and its members to be proactive to ensure Access Consultants are included in the regulatory process to provide better access provisions.
The Premises Standards Review Report and the Government’s response to the Report can be accessed at the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science website at https://industry.gov.au/PremisesStandardsReview. An easy read version is also available on the website.
