Plumbing Code of Australia – Victoria


It is required to comply with this code if you wish to work as a Plumber in the state of Victoria.

The Plumbing Code of Australia covers the technical provisions for the installation, design, replacement, repair, alteration, maintenance and construction of:

  • water services
  • sanitary plumbing and drainage systems
  • stormwater drainage systems
  • heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems
  • on-site wastewater management systems
  • on-site liquid trade waste management systems.

The Plumbing Industry Commission, through the Plumbing Regulations, has modified the Code. These changes include:

  • not adopting work or design that relates to a subsoil drain as part of the Code
  • not adopting the design, construction, replacement of stormwater pits, below-ground storage or retention tanks as part of the Code
  • changing all references to a plumbing or drainage installation as a plumbing or drainage system.

Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required by your business.
