Continuous improvements for NABERS Rules

News | 15 Jul 2020

NABERS Rules and Rulings are central to the integrity and robust nature of the NABERS certification system.

NABERS is committed to a cycle of continuous improvement, in dialogue and consultation with our users and with our assessor community. NABERS Rules and Rulings for review are selected based on feedback gathered through our auditing practices, discussions with users and time since last review.

Review of our Rules and Rulings starts with notifying users of the review through a range of communication channels such as articles and webinars. Next, NABERS gathers and analyses feedback received and, through collaboration with key users, refines this feedback into a program of works.

Whether a new document is to be developed or an existing document changed, NABERS works with our stakeholders to develop a draft document and implementation plan. These documents are circulated to our Auditors, Assessors and other relevant stakeholders for feedback and reviewed to ensure alignment with the broader NABERS library.

Rules and Rulings for Review in 2020-21

NABERS has targeted the following Rules and Rulings for review over FY 20-21, in order of priority. The table below shows when each of these reviews will start, their completion date will depend upon complexity of the review. Reviews not started or completed this year will be targeted for the next financial year.
