ABMA Image

The ABMA Building Management Code© is the industry guide to existing legislation relating to the maintenance of common property and shared infrastructure.  Any building owner (Body Corporate) of a scheme with common property must ensure that maintenance of that common property complies with over 100 Acts, Regulations, Australian Standards and Codes of Practice.  For practical guidelines in common language on how to implement compliance strategies onsite within legislative requirements, the ABMA Building Management Code© is the objective standard of the industry and applies to Committees, Body Corporate Managers, Facilities Managers and Caretakers alike.  Endorsed by the Independent Review Panel, each annual edition of the ABMA Building Management Code© includes the latest changes to legislation and acceptable “best practice” standards.  Subscribers can now remain abreast of the latest legislation affected compliance in their building.  For more information on Australian Building Management Accreditation – the custodian of the ABMA Building Management Code© visit www.abma.com.au

You will also be introduced into the setting up procedures for schemes files, the return of body corporate property and what is in the custody of body corporate managers. Find out what you are allowed to disclose after a search - and what not, so you don't get made responsible.
