The Guide to Standards and Tolerances published by the Victorian Building Authority is intended to be used by builders and building owners as a convenient reference to the minimum quality of building work expected. The Guide is a valuable tool that will provide guidance for areas of building standards that are not prescribed in legislation, building control and/or policy.
