The Australian Building Codes Board has added a new page to its website entitled “Non-Conforming Building Products”.

This webpage is presumably a response to various concerns raised about the risks of using substandard products or materials (‘non-conforming’), or using products and materials incorrectly (‘non-complying’).

The new webpage has general information on non-conforming building products (NCBP) including answering questions such as:

  • what are non-conforming building products?
  • what are the requirements for compliance and conformance for building products?
  • what are the responsibilities of the various stakeholders?
  • how to ensure that the right building products are being used?
  • what to do in the event of non-conformance?
  • how to lodge a query or report a suspected non-complying building product.
