What are the new Building Code of Australia regulations in regard to Slips, trips and falls for windows?

Effective 1 May 2013, the BCA has introduced in Class 1, 2 & 3 in building and Class 9 for early childcare centres in regard to first and second storey homes, that windows in bedrooms have a restrictor to be used within 1700mm of the floor.

For windows where the fall height from floor to ground is 2 metres or greater, all openings within 1700mm of the floor shall be fitted with either a device to restrict the size of the opening or a screen with secure fittings. The device or screen must not allow a 125mm ball to pass through the window opening and resist an outward force of 250N (≈25kgs). The device or screen maybe removable, but if so must be a child resistant release mechanism,

The device or screen is removable, there shall be no window openings greater than125mm within 865mm of the floor. Also there shall be no horizontal elements between 150mm to 760mm above the floor which can facilitate climbing. All other window to follow the existing requirements.
