The Building Products Innovation Council (BPIC) is the national body representing Australia’s building product associations who support Australia’s building product manufacturers and suppliers.
BPIC’s members and associated member companies directly employ over 200,000 Australians with more than 470,000 employed indirectly. Their collective industries are worth over $54bn annually to the Australian economy.
The Council’s prime objective is to provide unified and coordinated representation of the building products industry to Government and regulators while providing a forum for discussion and information sharing between manufacturers.
BPIC’s mission is to promote the most efficient and innovative use of building products within a nationally consistent regulatory environment and regards the Building Code of Australia as the pre-eminent national regulatory framework for building.
The Council works to fulfil this aim by sourcing and delivering practical and current industry information to regulators on behalf of its members. This industry-wide approach to responding to codes and standards helps to ensure all levels of government hear a unified voice when changes are proposed that will affect Australia’s building product manufacturing and supply industries.
BPIC works to ensure the regulatory framework supports a viable and efficient building products industry in Australia, recognising that this extends beyond Australia to the global market for building materials . BPIC also encourages investment in skills formation, product development and industry research by helping to identify and remove regulatory impediments to innovation. They participate in research into technical codes, standards and regulations as well as matters of mutual interest to the building products industry.The Council is governed by a Board of Directors comprising representatives from the member organisations
