Building and construction
State and territory governments regulate building and construction activities in Australia.
The Australian Government collaborates with state and territory governments to promote nationally consistent regulations through the National Construction Code (NCC).
We do this through the Building Ministers’ Meeting (BMM) and the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB).
Building Ministers’ Meeting
The BMM brings together Australian Government and state and territory government ministers responsible for building and construction. The Australian Government minister responsible for the building industry chairs the BMM.
The BMM works to:
- harmonise building regulations and standards
- collaborate on compliance and enforcement.
It sets the strategic direction for the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB). The ABCB is a multi-jurisdictional standards writing body. It oversees development of the National Construction Code (NCC).
Read more about these roles and responsibilities in the Intergovernmental Agreement on the ABCB website.
Read more about how we promote collaborative building and construction policy.
