CodeMark Australia Certificate Scheme

The CodeMark Certification Scheme is a voluntary third-party building product certification scheme, administered by the Australian Building Codes Board.

It supports the use of new or innovative building products in specified circumstances in Australia, by providing a nationally accepted process for demonstrating compliance with the National Construction Code.

CodeMark Certification is based on the supply of technical data and the conduct of relevant audits as well as on-going annual audit requirements to ensure continued compliance with the scheme.

Dedicated to all things building and plumbing, this is where you find information from the ABCB on matters directly relevant to the NCC:

Marking of CodeMark Compliant Products

Product marking plays a crucial role in ensuring compliance with Section 5 of the CodeMark Scheme Rules and Building Code of Australia (BCA) through the National Construct Code (NCC). By clearly and accurately labelling products, manufacturers provide essential information to regulators, customers, and end-users. Proper product marking enables easy identification of compliant items, ensuring that they meet relevant safety standards and regulations. It helps prevent the use of substandard or non-compliant products, protecting public health and safety. Moreover, accurate marking enhances transparency, facilitating effective quality control and traceability throughout the supply chain. Adhering to the CodeMark Scheme Rules regarding product marking establishes trust, promotes compliance, and contributes to a safer and more reliable built environment.

Changes to your product since it was certified

The things you need to let CMI Certification know that may or have changed since your product was originally certified are:

  • Change of Suppliers of any Raw Materials or Components
  • Change to Certified Product Specifications or Design
  • Change of Manufacturing Location
  • Change to Marking, Packaging, User Instructions, Installation Instructions etc
  • Change in Details or Address of Certificate Holder
  • Change to Standard or claims within the Standard

This notification should occur prior to the changes being actually implemented so that CMI Certification can discuss and advise the actions/updates that maybe required to be undertaken because of the change.
