About building rules for construction work
In South Australia, the Development Act 1993 and associated Development Regulations 2008 provide the framework for development and building work.
Development and building work that requires a building rules consent will require an assessment and must comply with the Building Rules.
The Building Rules prescribe the minimum technical requirements that apply to building and construction work and consist of the Development Regulations 2008, the Building Code of Australia and, where applicable, Minister's Specifications.
