The BCA & your building
What is the BCA?
BCA – or the Building Code of Australia – refers to Volumes One and Two of the National Construction Code (NCC). It is produced and maintained by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) on behalf of the Australian Government and State and Territory Governments. The BCA is a building regulation in all States and Territories.
Why is the BCA so important?
The BCA allows the building industry to ensure nationally consistent, minimum necessary safety standards in building and construction. This includes structural and fire construction, health, amenity and sustainability. The BCA protects builders and clients alike, by imposing strict safety regulations that need to be legally met on every building project.
