The Civil Contractors Federation (CCF) has developed a code called the Civil Construction Management Code. This code is based on the Australian and International Standards for Quality, Safety and Environmental management systems, and has been customized to meet the needs of the civil construction industry. It offers companies the ability to demonstrate compliance to a recognized Code without the need to get full Certification to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and AS/NZS 4801.
The CCF Program has been recognized by a number of key stakeholders and purchasing bodies throughout Australia and New Zealand, like State Utilities (Water, Roads, Electricity etc) and local Governments who wish to have confidence in the supply chain.
The Program has been very successful in supporting many organizations (large and small) throughout Australia and New Zealand, which are involved in all aspects of civil construction including the construction of:
- Roads and bridges
- Land development
- Water treatment and reticulation
- Telecommunications infrastructure
- Electricity distribution
- Gas pipelines and dams
A small business version of the CCF has also been introduced, called SCIMS (Small Contractor Integrated Management System) which has been tailored to better meet the requirements and risk exposure of small organizations.
