Australia’s highest level of product assurance and compliance


Kingspan Insulation’s AIR-CELL was the first insulation product in Australia to certify to the National Construction Code under the CodeMark scheme, beating the rest of the industry including the region’s largest manufacturers to the mark.

What is CodeMark?

Considered to be the building industry’s highest level of product assurance, CodeMark is a certification scheme managed by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB).

Why is CodeMark important?

CodeMark references Kingspan Insulation's certified products against the relevant insulation sections of the National Construction Code (NCC) to make sure it complies not only with the testing standards (including compulsory insulation standard AS/NZS 4859.1), but also the suitability of the product and its compliance to building types and/or applications as regulated by the NCC. CodeMark is the only certification scheme that delivers this total compliance.

What are the benefits of CodeMark?

Provides legislated acceptance of Kingspan Insulation's certified products by building certifiers and building control authorities, expediting approval processes.

  • Helps to manage risk and legal liability
  • Increases confidence in building products and practices
  • Facilitates the use of innovative new products


What does that mean for me?

It means total peace of mind. With CodeMark certification, home owners can breathe easy knowing that Kingspan Insulation's certified products delivers compliance to the NCC in relation to insulation requirements*; while builders, architects, designers, and building certifiers can breathe easy knowing that they can better manage their legal liabilities in relation to product compliance to the NCC.

*Refer to conditions and limitations noted on certificate.
