Annual National Construction Code changes

From early June until 1 August each year the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) releases draft amendments to all three volumes of the National Construction Code (NCC) for public comment.
 
The Building Codes Committee and Plumbing Codes Committee are the ABCB’s peak technical advisory bodies. Part of their roles is to provide advice and recommendations to the ABCB about the proposed NCC changes.
 
Building Codes Queensland represents Queensland on both Committees.
 
If you would like to raise any issues about the proposed annual NCC changes with either of the Committees, please email your feedback or comments to our representatives for their consideration.
 
Building Codes Committee: bccgovrep@qld.gov.au
Plumbing Codes Committee: pccgovrep@qld.gov.au
 
You can also provide feedback through your industry body or directly to the ABCB. For more information visit www.abcb.gov.au.
