Awnings, like all building structures, need to be regularly maintained to prevent degradation and maintain structural adequacy.


Regular maintenance of awnings is crucial to minimising the risk of a collapse and providing an adequate level of safety to the public.


The Department has issued the following Circulars on the safety of awnings over public lands:

  1. BS 17 - 001 (issued 10 May 2017)
  2. BS 13 - 001 (issued 8 March 2013)
