What is CodeMark Australia?
The CodeMark Australia Certification Scheme is a voluntary third-party building product certification scheme that independently authorises the use of new and innovative products in specified circumstances that are compliant the National Construction Code (NCC).
CodeMark certification is important for products like Weathertex – which have been on the market for many years – because it provides builders (and their clients) with an assurance that various NCC standards have been met or exceeded.

- Volume 1 & 2 of the BCA 2019
- Classes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10
- Structural Reliability
- Up to and including BAL 19
- Type C construction
- Attachment to FRL walls tested to AS 1530.4:2014
