With critical changes to the National Construction Code (NCC) coming into effect from 1 October 2023, we’ve developed two information tools to assist you to understand the requirements and support implementation within your new builds and major renovations from 1 October 2023.
Use the Consumer Guide to inform your clients of the changes coming, what it means for their home and what will be required from 1 October 2023.
The Documentation Guide will to help to step industry through all the stages of compliance. It will step you through all stages of implementation and help ensure any new dwellings you’re working on meet the new requirements. It's been prepared in conjunction with the Building Designers Association of Australia (BDAA) and the Australian Institute of Building Certifiers (AIBS).
Don’t forget to come along to our 2023 Roadshow – coming to a region near you during May – to hear more about the NCC transitional arrangements between now and 1 October and key things you need to know about implementation.
Advocating for you
We’ve advocated for many years on behalf of members with regards to these changes – you’ve told us that they will have a significant negative impact on the capacity of the building industry to deliver new housing and upgrade existing housing.
More recently, we've spoken extensively about the impact to housing affordability these changes will have and the disruption it will bring at a time when the industry is already grappling with so many challenges.
We succeeded in having the changes delayed until 1 October 2023, as well as a number of changes, to begin to make the rules workable.
We're continuing to advocate for further clarity and sensible concessions, and will keep working with other stakeholders and the Queensland Government towards this.
