What is BAL ?
BAL refers to ‘ Bushfire Attack Level ‘. From 11 March 2009, the Australian Standard 3959-2009 requires new and replacement homes to be designed, constructed and located with improved bushfire protection.
If you intend to build, renovate or repair a home in a bushfire prone area, the work will need to take the standard into account. Your builder, designer or architect will advise you on how best to achieve this. If you are unsure whether your building work needs to comply, contact the relevant local Council.
