Non-conforming building products

Building and construction can be complex. Even ‘simple’ buildings are comprised of many thousands of building products and materials. Choosing and using the right materials and products is important whether your building project is a small renovation, major alteration, maintenance of an existing building, or a completely new build.

All building work in Australia must meet certain performance and legal requirements. This ensures our buildings are safe, healthy and durable which means we all can have confidence in their performance.

In recent years concerns have been raised about the risks of using substandard (‘non-conforming’) products or materials, or using products and materials incorrectly (‘non-complying’).
