The Commercial Building Disclosure (CBD) Program applies to most sellers and lessors of office space of 2000 square metres (1000 square metres from 1 July 2017) or more. A Building Energy Efficiency Certificate (BEEC) is required before the space goes on the market. The aim is to improve the energy efficiency of Australia's large office buildings.
