• The building and construction industry is one of the most heavily regulated industries. The need for immediate access to essential and current Standards and building codes of practice - wherever you are and whenever they are needed - is crucial to remain compliant.

    • The consequences of being non-compliant in the building and construction industry

      Not using the relevant Standards and Codes means risking non-compliance, which can have substantial and tangible negative impacts on all involved both within the industry and in the community.

      • Within your organization, the consequences of non-compliance can range from employees losing their jobs to financial losses. If a project your organization completed has not met the requirements of its associated Standards and Codes, it can result in legal action - costing your organization time and valuable resources.

        Non-compliance can also result in dangerous building or infrastructure defects, that can pose serious public health risks. Examples include:

        • Unstable foundations of a building can lead to cracks, even collapses
        • Buildings with leaks that lead to dampness and mould issues
        • Using materials that don't meet the requirements or specifications for its purpose
        • Fire damage from using materials that do not meet codes dictating non-combustibility requirements.
