Plumbing guidelines

Read about the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) WaterMark Certification Scheme and find out how to check whether the products you are buying or installing are certified for use in Australia.

These guidelines are authorised by section 154 of the Plumbing and Drainage Act 2018.

Relevant plumbing practitioners, Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) investigators, local governments, plumbing inspectors and property owners must consult the published guideline that's relevant to work you're completing.
