ABMA Building Compliance Accreditation Program

Building compliance under the ABMA Building Management Code (ABMA ‘Code’) must be every building owner’s compliance goal and the first step toward building compliance is entering into the ABMA Building Compliance Accreditation Program.

There are two (2) phases to the ABMA Building Compliance Accreditation Program. The first of these is establishment of the site specific building compliance requirements and issuance of the Establishment Schedule Statement for the building. The establishment of the Establishment Schedule Statement occurs once and forms the basis of the ongoing annual building compliance assessment program.

The second phase is the ABMA Annual Building Compliance Assessment phase, which happens annually for the full life of the building on each anniversary of the Establishment Schedule Statement.

Annual Building Compliance Accreditation with Australian Building Management Accreditation (ABMA) sustainably ensures that your structure complies with statutory maintenance and safety obligations. To guarantee that your common property is being serviced to the national objective standard and in accordance with all associated Acts, Regulations and standards, the ABMA bridges the regulatory gap and assesses compliance to the same rigorous effective standard, without the threat of infringement penalty for any observed non-compliances. ABMA Accredited Compliance & Performance Assessors are independent qualified persons, specially trained to work with building owners to ensure full compliance is the outcome of every ABMA Building Compliance Accreditation Program.
