CodeMark Certification

CodeMark provides confidence and certainty to regulatory authorities and the market through the issue of a Certificate of Conformity, as evidence to demonstrate that a building product complies with NCC Volumes One and Two - the Building Code of Australia (BCA).
Certification Scheme

The CodeMark Certification Scheme (CodeMark) is a voluntary building product certification scheme that supports the use of new or innovative products. 

The Scheme operates in both Australia and New Zealand and was jointly developed by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) and the New Zealand Department of Building and Housing (now part of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment).
How it Works

The ABCB and New Zealand's Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment manage the CodeMark schemes in their respective countries. This includes the development of scheme rules that set out the requirements for the evaluation and certification of products under the CodeMark scheme. Only accredited certification bodies can issue CodeMark Certificates of Conformity. These companies are responsible for evaluating products and issuing certificates where they comply with the BCA.

Certification bodies are assessed and accredited by JAS-ANZ, who works on behalf of the CodeMark scheme operators to maintain product certification standards. Relevant legislation requires building control authorities to accept CodeMark Certificates of Conformity as evidence of compliance with the BCA, as long as the product is used as specified on the certificate.

Frequently Asked Questions
  1. Do timber product treatments need to conform to the Australian Standards?
    No. The Australian Standards are only one pathway to BCA compliance. CodeMark is another and equally accepted.
     
  2. Will the Australian Standards treatment reference remain stamped on our products?
    Yes, where the the Australian Standards are still relevant (T2 Red and T3 Green). No, where treatment innovations have been CodeMark certified (T2 Blue and T3 Green Plus), or for new product treatments where no relevant Australian Standard exists.
     
  3. Will certifiers and authorities question CodeMark?
    No. Many building products use CodeMark certification, so no onsite issues are expected.
     
  4. Do other timber products use CodeMark certification?
    Very few treated timber products are innovative or third party audited, hence very few are CodeMark certified.
     
  5. If almost no other timber products are CodeMark certified, then why bother?
    As an Australian company, we audit many aspects of our business to ensure compliance and best practice. Yet the Australian Standards require no auditing of product treatments. We view CodeMark as an opportunity to provide our customers with an additional level of assurance regarding the treatment quality and consistency of our solid wood framing products.
