The ABCC's role, as set out in the ABCC Corporate Plan 2017–18, is to promote an improved workplace relations framework to ensure that building work is carried out fairly, efficiently and productively for the benefit of all building industry participants, without distinction, and for the benefit of the Australian economy as a whole.

Our vision is that all Australian building and construction workplaces are fair, efficient and productive.

Our mission is to ensure that the rule of law prevails in the Australian building and construction industry.
