The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) is a multi-jurisdictional standards writing body responsible for the National Construction Code (NCC) and the administration of the WaterMark and CodeMark certification schemes. Our work helps the Australian building industry to meet minimum necessary standards for health, safety, amenity, accessibility, and sustainability.

We recognise that community and industry trust and confidence is an essential part of every effective regulatory system. Our Charter of Transparency and Engagement sets out our commitment to building and retaining the long-term confidence and trust of the people and organisations who have an interest in our work.

Through this document, we are committing to share information about the way we work, to consult in ways that help people share perspectives with us and to explain the way we have made our decisions.
