Abstract

After a three-year cycle of industry comment, review and revision, 1 May 2019 marks the adoption of a new code. Overseen by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB), the NCC is the nation’s defining operational document of building regulatory provisions, standards and performance levels. Its mission statement is to provide the minimum necessary requirements for safety and health, amenity, accessibility and sustainability in the design, construction, performance and liveability of new buildings.
