The National Construction Code Volume 3 (Plumbing Code of Australia - PCA) is published by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) and provides the minimum safety, health, amenity and sustainability objectives for plumbing and drainage in Australia. The ABCB also publishes a schedule of specifications for the mandatory WaterMark Certification Scheme for plumbing and drainage products. The Standard series AS/NZS 3500 in turn provides a set of practices that are deemed to satisfy the PCA objectives.
