The Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) supports Queenslanders by:
providing insurance that helps to safeguard building work;
helping make sure builders are licensed;
work is done to standard and any defects are rectified;
helping protect the building and construction industry from unscrupulous contractors
working to help tradies get paid.
As a performance-based code, it sets the minimum required level for the safety, health, amenity, accessibility and sustainability of certain buildings. The Australian Building Codes Board, on behalf of the Australian Government and each State and Territory government, produces and maintains the National Construction Code.
