A powerful member association

Our large membership base gives us political strength and the ability to develop and advocate policy founded on the importance of the housing industry and benefiting all Australians.

The HIA logo is displayed as a sign of professionalism on building sites all around the country. Our members are responsible for over 80 per cent of new homes and renovations in Australia.

Helping protect the integrity of the industry

All HIA members agree to be bound by the HIA National Code of Ethics developed to promote the highest standards of work and conduct by members within the community.

Under the National Code of Ethics, HIA members shall conduct their business to provide products and services with competence, fairness, value, honesty and integrity.

Any consumer or HIA member who believes they have a complaint against an HIA member in connection with their conduct can apply in writing to HIA asking that the matter be dealt with under the National Code of Ethics.

Although HIA has no power to make a legal determination, if a member is found by HIA to have acted contrary to the Code, HIA may caution, reprimand, suspend or expel the member.
