National Construction Code
The National Construction Code (NCC) is an initiative of the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) developed to incorporate all on-site building and plumbing requirements into a single code.
The NCC sets the minimum requirements for the design, construction and performance of buildings throughout Australia.
The NCC is comprised of the Building Code of Australia (BCA), Volume One and Two; and the Plumbing Code of Australia (PCA), Volume Three.
Changes and amendments to the NCC are on a three-year amendment cycle. The next scheduled edition will be NCC 2019.
It is important for contractors to perform works in accordance with the applicable version of the NCC. Failure to do so is a breach of their statutory and contractual obligations.
