Cladding Safety Victoria has been established by the Victorian Government to provide support and guidance to building owners and occupants of buildings with combustible cladding.

This newly developed team will provide advice on how to reduce fire risk, help owners find qualified project managers and other professionals and, in higher-risk situations, provide funding for approved works. This could include funding for:

> Project management support
> Professional design services
> Building surveying
> Permits and approvals
> Building materials and rectification work

While Cladding Safety Victoria supports owners and residents through the rectification process, the VBA will continue to identify, inspect and assess multi-storey buildings across the state. Where an apartment building is assessed as having heightened fire safety risk, it will be referred to Cladding Safety Victoria.

Owners of buildings outside the scope of Cladding Safety Victoria, such as private hospitals, private schools, and aged care facilities, will continue to liaise with the VBA directly.

Anyone seeking further information about replacing combustible cladding can call the telephone support line on 1300 456 542 or email
