CCF Code Version 10
The primary purpose of the CCF Code is to assist Contractor businesses to achieve and maintain compliance to the relevant industry standards and regulations required by Federal and/or State Authorities.
The Code draws together elements of Quality, Workplace Health and Safety, and Environmental Management, in one system. It is used by service providers as a practical, easy way to interpret Standards and demonstrate that their services meet industry benchmarks and relevant regulatory requirements; and for the users of these services to be confident in the high levels of SEQ compliance in their delivery.
This Code (Version 10) replaced Version 9 on the 28 February and has brought:
- An increased focus on business
- A simple total risk management approach
- Enhanced customer and community focus
- Added requirements for incident management and emergency preparedness, and,
- Requirements for competence and awareness
Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ)

Management System Reference Documents
The CCF Management Code (Version 10) is supported by the Management System Reference Documents (MSRD), a suite of documents and templates, providing the basis for development of a Management System that can be Certified by a JAS-ANZ Accredited Auditor.
The Reference Documents provide templates for Policies, Procedures, Registers and Management Forms necessary for the management of a civil construction business. These documents are available to all financial members of CCF Victoria as part of their annual membership subscription through the Member’s Portal.
The Reference Documents are regularly updated to address changing Legislation and Regulation and to respond to new client requirements. For example, checklists that include specific client requirements, such as the VEDN Accreditation requirements will soon be added.
Emerging issues such as Mental Health, Social Procurement, Sustainability, and Climate Change pose new challenges requiring Contractors are to effectively respond and manage within their businesses.
New Policies and procedures are planned and will be added to the Reference document set as they are developed. Non-members are able to purchase the Code and receive a one off issue of the Reference Documents.
How to access the Code Documents
These documents are ONLY available exclusively to CCF Victoria Members via the CCF Member Portal.
By being a member of CCF Victoria, you will be entitled to receive access to regular updates of the Management System Reference Documents suite and templates, bringing you even greater value to your CCF Membership.
