Australian Building Codes Board ("ABCB")

Australian Building Codes Board ("ABCB")

The Australian Building Codes Board ("ABCB") is an organisation established by all levels of government in Australia under an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) by the Council of Australian Governments ("COAG") to improve building outcomes and increase confidence in the building and construction industry in Australia.

The key objectives of the ABCB are to oversee and improve building outcomes relating to health, safety, amenity, accessibility, and sustainability in buildings.

The ABCB promotes efficiency in the design, construction and performance of buildings and plumbing systems through the National Construction Code (NCC), and the development of effective regulatory and non‐regulatory implementation of these objectives.
