NSW fair trading advises:

The Fire Safety and External Wall Cladding Taskforce launched a campaign this month, aimed at residents and tenants of multi-storey apartment buildings in NSW.

Owners can ensure their building is safe, by:

  • finding out if their building has aluminium cladding
  • checking whether their building has a current and up-to-date fire safety statement
  • ensuring a fire safety professional has inspected any cladding, and
  • taking immediate action to make any recommended changes.

Tenants should contact their managing agent or landlord to check if the above steps have been taken.
