National Construction Code 2019 commenced on May 1

Published: 23 May 2019

Having been approved by COAG earlier this year, the 2019 edition of the National Construction Code formally commenced on May 1, 2019.

All three volumes have been released by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) and are now available to download.

Given the significant changes to the energy efficiency provisions within Section J of Volume One, a twelve-month transitional period will apply until April 30, 2020. 

During this time either the new NCC 2019 provisions or those from NCC 2016 may be used.

The next edition of the NCC is scheduled to be released in 2022.
