Bushfire Resilience Rating Certificaton

The Bushfire Resilience Rating has been developed by Australia’s leading bushfire resilience experts through a collaboration led by the Resilient Building Council (RBC), funded by the Australian Government’s National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and industry sponsors, supported by emergency management agencies and community members around Australia.

We are seeking interest from households who would like to complete a self-assessment and receive support from our project team to certify their Rating and access benefits.

Step 1

Complete the Bushfire Resilience Rating Home Assessment.

Take photos of your home, ensuring you capture a photo of each side of the house, surrounding vegetation, attached structures like decks and carports, windows and doors, power and water services, vents and any building penetrations, openings or gaps, other buildings within 10 metres of the home and items stored around the home.

You will also need to ask a builder or trade to safely inspect your roof to ensure it is in good condition with no gaps greater than 2mm, and provide photos.

Step 2

Complete the form below and upload the photos of your home.

Step 3

Our assessors will review your home assessment results and photos, to validate your results. We may require a video call to check some elements more closely.

Step 4

Once you receive your certificate, you may choose to share your certified Rating with your insurer or bank to obtain discounts. We will provide guidance on how to do this.

Click or drag files to this area to upload. You can upload up to 100 files.
Attach photos of your home, and any relevant documents relating to resilient items or materials installed in your home.
