SYNOPSIS

Background - Our country started off with the Uniform Building By-Law (UBBBL) 1984 and this went on well until it was revised in 2012. Since then UBBL is no longer uniform in our country. This is because EACH State MUST gazettes the UBBL 2012 in their respective State Assembly in order the UBBL to become a lawful document.

Selangor State was the first to gazette the revised UBBL 2012.In a haste to gazette the UBBL 2012 without sufficiently vetting the document, there were a number of incorrectly worded clauses, spelling error, etc. There are many more States yet to gazette the UBBL 2012.

Note: Sarawak Ordinance is almost a version of UBBL 1984 and would remain the same until it adopts the revised 2012 version.

In this respect, 0ur Uniform Building By-Law 1984 is NO LONGER uniform in all the states. A working group chaired by a Senior Officer from the Fire Rescue Department Malaysia (FRDM) is working towards correcting the incorrect words and errors in the UBBL 2012. Upon completion it will be UBBL 2019 or 2020 then the cycle repeats itself, awaits the respective State Assembly to gazette the UBBL.

The various shortcomings of the UBBL 2012 will be highlighted and new items proposed in the UBBL 2019 especially on Schedule 10.
