BASIX (the Building Sustainability Index) 

If you are building a new home in NSW, you need to know about the BASIX Certificate. This is important information for all development applicants.

The NSW Government is committed to conserving our scarce water resources and reducing the impact of greenhouse gasses on our climate.

To ensure all new homes use less water and energy, BASIX now applies across all of New South Wales.

This means, you need to include a BASIX Certificate with your proposal to build a new house, dual occupancy or multi-unit residential development anywhere in NSW.
