CBD Program Review
The Government has initiated two independent reviews of the Commercial Building Disclosure (CBD) program to evaluate its effectiveness and scope.
The first review was completed in 2016. It found that the program was effective, and recommended lowering the disclosure threshold and changing the Tenancy Lighting Assessment validity period and reporting process. These changes were implemented between 2016 and 2017.
The second review is occurring in 2019. It will consider expanding mandatory disclosure to other high energy-using building types.
