What is the Information Publication Scheme?
The FOI Act establishes the Information Publication Scheme ( IPS ), which requires Australian Government agencies to publish a broad range of information on their websites. We have listed available information below by topic, as described in the FOI Act.
ABCC Agency Plan
The ABCC Agency Plan describes how the ABCC proposes to implement and administer the IPS.
The ABCC has also published a Web Accessibility Action Plan (Word - 161 K) | PDF - 220 K). This Web Accessibility Action Plan states the ABCC's effort to meet requirements of the DD Act and to be in line with the Australian Government's Web Accessibility National Transition Strategy.
The ABCC as an agency
The ABCC is a Commonwealth agency that aims to provide an improved workplace relations framework to ensure that building work is carried out fairly, efficiently and productively. We ensure building industry participants comply with designated building laws and the Code.
