Mandatory inclusion of insect screens

NatHERS has specified that draught seals and insect screens be included for regulatory ratings.  These decisions are made based on the NCC/BCA requirements and to create a level of consistency between assessments.  These need to be included within the final energy rating certificate regardless of whether or not they are included within the final build.

    I have a project in which the client does not want insect screen to the sliding door open to their Unit's balcony. From reading between the lines, my interpretation of this is that it is required to include insect screens for consistency between assessments, however actual installation of screen is not a requirement under NCC/BCA? Is this correct?
