Access Instiute Response to National Registration Framework (NRF) for Building Practitioners

Discussion Paper 2020

The NRF for building Practitioners – Discussion Paper 2020, identifies an important role relating to Access Consultants, with specific expertise in regard to the National Construction Code (NCC) and access requirements for buildings.

The proposed NRF has the potential to have significant impact on the role of Access Consultants in assessing compliance and providing advice in relation to the access requirements of the National Construction Code (NCC). Therefore Access Institute believes it is critical that the role is clearly understood, articulated and incorporates appropriately skilled, qualified and experienced access professionals that are competent to undertake the important work required to support equitable, dignified access outcomes for all users of buildings and facilities.

Access Institute has prepared the following response to the Discussion Paper and encourages interested stakeholders to submit their own responses and/or to support Access Institutes response through the ABCB Consultation Hub by 23rd August, 2020 when submissions close.

‘I was very impressed with the LHA course facilitator, Lucas Wheeler. He was terrific, very knowledgeable, fantastic use of words to describe meanings and processes and was able to respond really well to all questions. I also liked how he was able to extrapolate from specific questions and weave into dialogue to either give an example or contextualise it in relation to the bigger picture. Thought he was a first class facilitator.’ — Pauline Young, Sales Consultant, Amicum - Aged Care and Retirement Living Specialists
