Guidelines on the Application of the Access to Premises Standards

The Guideline on the application of the Premises Standards has been developed by the Australian Human Rights Commission to assist building professionals and those concerned with access to better understand how the Premises Standards apply to new and upgraded public buildings.

The original Guidelines was issued in March 2011 and this version was issued in February 2013. It contains a number of edits and new notes on interpretation based on feedback from users.
