Structure, organisations and key people
The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) is a Council of Australian Government (COAG) codes and standards writing body that is responsible for the development and maintenance of the National Construction Code (NCC), which comprises the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and the Plumbing Code of Australia (PCA). COAG has signalled its intent to combine all onsite building regulation into the NCC, with gas and telecommunication regulation currently being assessed, and electrical likely to be considered in the future.
The Board sets minimum necessary technical building requirements, standards and regulatory systems that are nationally consistent between States and Territories and which are cost-effective, performance-based and facilitate modern and efficient building practices.
