2017 signals the end for the transitional period for the BASIX energy targets
Home buyers wishing to take
advantage of the lower pre-July energy targets under the transitional
arrangements will need to apply for a BASIX certificate before 31 December
After this date, the lower
pre-July 2017 targets will no longer be available and all new homes and units
will be subject to the energy targets introduced on 1 July 2017.
Projects that have been
granted access to the pre-July targets on the basis that there is a
pre-contract agreement in place will need to finalise and sign a qualifying building
contract no later than 31 December in order to be eligible to use the
lower pre-July targets.
Only those projects with a
valid ‘pre-July’ certificate lodged with the consent authority, or subject to
an existing DA or CDC, can be revised using the pre-July targets. Projects
commenced under the pre-July transitional arrangements that are subsequently
unable to meet the eligibility requirements, and any qualifying project for
which a certificate has not been generated and lodged with the consent
authority by 31 March 2018, will need to be revised to meet the new targets.

for the pre-July transitional arrangements is available here
