The NatHERS Handbook is being developed by the NatHERS Administrator in conjunction with industry experts, with progress now well underway. Designed to help assessors navigate the NatHERS assessment process, the Handbook describes how assessments should be conducted and explains the mandatory and recommended steps of the process.
7 of the 10 chapters of the Handbook have now completed a consultation period, and the NatHERS Administrator is currently collating the feedback received, whilst working with the graphic designer to produce the final version for release. It is anticipated the NatHERS Handbook will be released in early in 2019 to align with the release of an updated NatHERS Technical Note and Chenath changes. This release will also align with the NCC update scheduled for implementation from May 2019.
Once published, the NatHERS Handbook will be available on the NatHERS website and communicated to state and territory building authorities, and to assessors through Assessor Accrediting Organisations (AAOs).
