Advice and assistance on Building Code compliance

More than 45 per cent of all Australian construction projects are subject to either the 2013 or 2016 Building Code, with an estimated value of more than $92 billion.

The ABCC has an important role working with industry to provide assistance and advice in relation to rights and obligations on projects that are subject to the Code.
