We ensure safe and sustainable building and plumbing systems through regulatory and non-regulatory measures, in collaboration with Australian governments and industry.

The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) is a standards writing body responsible for the National Construction Code, WaterMark and CodeMark Certification Schemes, and regulatory reform in the construction industry. The ABCB is a joint initiative of the Commonwealth and State and Territory Governments, together with the building and plumbing industries.
