Following the recent announcement on changes to the Commercial Building Disclosure Program, from 1 September 2016, a Tenancy Lighting Assessment (TLA) will have a five-year validity.

The Building Energy Efficiency Certificates will still have a one-year validity, as they are aligned with the NABERS Energy for Offices rating.

The CBD Program administrator has taken this opportunity to update the ‘CBD Tenancy Lighting Assessment for Offices Rules’ (the Rules) version 2. The updated rules, version 3, will also come into effect on 1 September 2016.
