Bushfire Rating System
The relevant building surveyor will use the BAL to check compliance with the construction requirements of the Standard. On 11 March 2009 the Victorian Government adopted the Australian Standard AS 3959-2009 Construction of buildings in bushfire-prone areas into a new residential building Standard to ensure Victorian homes are better protected in the event of a bushfire.
Every new home built or renovated in a bushfire prone area within Victoria must undergo a BAL assessment as part of the application for a building permit. The site BAL assessment determines the construction methods that must be used to better protect properties from the threat of bushfires.
