In early 2013, George Maltabarow, former president of the Building Professionals Board, looked at ways to improve and refine the building certification system in NSW.
The report, Building certification and regulation - serving a new planning system for NSW (Maltabarow report) makes recommendations regarding reforms to the building certification system and how it will operate with the new planning system.

Please note: the Building Professionals Board advises of an amendment to the last paragraph on page 25 of the Maltabarow report, regarding the discussion paper Improving building certification in Queensland.
Since the Maltabarow report was developed, the Queensland Government's consideration of the proposals in its discussion paper was put on hold, pending the outcomes of the Inquiry into the Operation and Performance of the (former) Queensland Building Services Authority. Also, appendix 5 of the Maltabarow report (Queensland certification - summary of key proposals) has therefore been removed.
33 submissions were received during (and after) the public consultation period from 23 December 2013 to 4 April 2014.
