Australian Building Regulation Bulletin (ABRB)

The ABRB is one of the ABCB's key mechanisms for delivering and raising awareness of technically based information directly relevant to the building and plumbing industry and the community. This electronic publication provides a means for delivering information on code-related issues that address specific technical matters, contains information on broader building and plumbing regulations, and provides for expert opinions on significant technical and regulatory topics.

 

The ABRB is produced three times each year and is an information service to users of the National Construction Code (NCC).  The latest edition is available now and includes interactive links and features optimised for desktops.  In this edition you will find articles on:

  • A new ABCB standard for temporary structures.

  • NCC terminology - understanding references to terms that are used in relation to the NCC.

  • The latest on plumbing code development research.

  • Developing a NCC solution - prescriptive or performance - it's your choice!

  • The ABCB's 2016 Cadetship Program.

  • Your last chance to register for Building Australia's Future 2015 Conference.
  • The release of new YouTube clips, resource kits and updated handbooks.

  • Case studies on the use of performance.

  • And more...
