  • Keep up to date with the latest building & construction Standards,
    improve and increase efficiency, and stay safe and compliant

    • The building and construction sector is critical to Australia's economy. Running a business that is compliant with industry regulations can provide increased productivity and better returns. Standards in the building and construction industry  assist to develop operating environments that are 'technically correct'. Following Standards mean you save time and money by doing the job right.  Adhering to the Standards is also likely to win customer trust and improve your business credentials.

      There are many Australian Standards impacting the building and construction sector due to the large number of occupations and trades covered: builders, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, tilers, painters, roofers, welders amongst many others. Building and construction is high risk so there are many interlinked Standards providing guidelines for creating and maintaining a safe culture. Complying with the Standards in your field allows you to stay on top of your regulatory requirements whilst delivering a top job for the end user. This in turn, instils confidence in your trade, your business and the industry.
