Standards Guidelines

Classic is committed to maintaining the highest standards and professional certifications attainable in the industry.
Our products and practices are in line with the standards and codes laid out by Standards Australia and other regional regulatory bodies. Below are resources related to these standards and various certifications.

The Building Code of Australia (BCA), in the National Construction Code series, contains technical provisions for the design and construction of buildings and other structures, including the specification around building products such as stair nosings and tactiles.

The BCA addresses the following matters:

• structural adequacy
• fire resistance
• access and egress
• services and equipment
• energy efficiency and sustainability
• provisions for the health and amenity of occupants.

As part of its provisions, the BCA references several technical documents, including Australian Standards and Minister’s Specifications.

The Building Code of Australia (BCA) can be viewed for free on the Australian Building Codes Board

Standards Australia has developed almost 7,000 Australian Standards and associated publications, on a wide range of matters. They are all available for purchase from Standards Australia in a variety of formats.

Victorian Building Authority has resources and guides that can help with understanding the standards – Slip-resistance for stairways, landings and ramps

National Construction Code (NCC) provides the minimum necessary requirements for safety, health, amenity and sustainability in the design and construction of new buildings (and new building work in existing buildings) throughout Australia. It covers the Building Code of Australia and Plumbing Code of Australia and is managed by the ABCB.
