The National Construction Code (NCC) incorporates all on-site building and plumbing requirements into a single code, setting out the minimum requirements for the design, construction and performance of buildings throughout Australia.
In Queensland we also refer to the Queensland Development Code (QDC), which contains, amongst other things, Queensland variations to the National Construction Code and consolidates Queensland-specific building standards into a single document.
The QDC covers Queensland matters that are outside the scope of, and in addition to, the National Construction Code (e.g. requirements for energy efficiency).
If you’re not working with the right version of the NCC, you’re in breach of their statutory and contractual obligations, so make sure you’re across the recent changes:
NCC compliance is a statutory requirement, and you should always review and check that your work complies with the applicable sections of the code.
