This study investigated new house construction around Australia to gain insight into the quality of house construction with regard to the energy efficiency aspects of air‐tightness and quality of installation of insulation and heating/cooling ductwork and involved recruiting 20 houses in each capital city around Australia (Darwin was not included).
It followed concerns raised that the energy efficiency features of houses that are required to achieve the minimum energy efficiency standards in the National Construction Code (NCC) (Australian Building Codes Board, 2015) were not delivering assessed benefits For example where insulation and weather sealing is poorly installed by builders houses will have lower energy efficiency performance than expected. This filled a gaps in research with little data previously collected on newly built houses to quantify air‐tightness and assess the quality of installation of insulation and heating/cooling ductwork.
This review results from the sunsetting provisions that require a review to assess if the legislative instrument remains adequate and relevant. Options presented in this paper include, repealing, parliamentary roll over, or remaking the Oilcode.

Australia’s vulnerability to a major interruption to global oil supply has been addressed in previous ACIL Allen reports to government for National Energy Security Assessments, and considered by the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Economics in its 2012 Inquiry into Australia’s Refining Industry.
This explanatory report examines the levers Australian suppliers use to provide resilience in their supply chains and how these are used to mitigate disruption events.
This supplementary paper provides additional advice on ticket markets should Australia opt to use ticket stock as a strategy to assist with meeting IEA commitments.
Report provides a further update to the 2013 Ticket Market Pricing Update report and discusses which countries are generally ticket buyers and which are generally ticket sellers.
The Competition and Consumer (Industry Codes–Oilcode) Regulation 2006 (Oilcode) regulates the conduct of suppliers, distributors and retailers in the petroleum marketing industry. The Department of Industry has a regulatory requirement, resulting from the 2008 review of the code (see section 3 of this paper), to undertake a review of the Oilcode.
