The Australian Building Code Board (ABCB) is committed to ensuring practitioners of all experience levels can understand and apply the code. To support you in your job and education, the ABCB regularly produces resources such as news articles, videos, infographics and case studies.

Here you can search the resource library by the topic you’re interested in, your profession or by a specific resource name. Each of our sites has it's own resource library which focuses on topics specific to that site. Hence, NCC-related material is collected in the NCC Resource Library and so forth. And if there’s something specific you would like to see made into a resource, please feel free to get in touch.
