Building Ministers' Meeting
The Building Ministers' Meeting (BMM) oversees policy and regulatory issues affecting Australia’s building and construction industries.
The BMM brings together Australian Government and state and territory government ministers with responsibility for building and construction. The Australian Government minister responsible for the building industry chairs the BMM.
The BMM was previously the Building Ministers’ Forum (BMF), a change that came out of the Conran review of ministerial forums.
Roles and responsibilities
The BMM’s responsibilities cover:
- harmonising building regulations and standards
- collaborating on compliance and enforcement
- other policy issues affecting Australia’s building and construction industries
Australian Building Codes Board
The BMM sets the strategic direction for the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB), a multi-jurisdictional standards writing body. The ABCB oversees development of the National Construction Code (NCC). The NCC contains all on-site building and plumbing requirements.
Read more about these roles and responsibilities in the Intergovernmental Agreement on the ABCB website.
We release a Building Ministers' Communiqué after each BMM meeting.
The BMF requested an expert assessment of the effectiveness of compliance and enforcement systems for the building and construction industry. Read the implementation plan that addresses recommendations and outlines a roadmap for reform.
