On 26 August 2022, Building Ministers agreed that the NCC 2022 will be available from 1 October 2022 for people who want to follow the new Modern Homes standards voluntarily.
NCC 2022 will commence on 1 May 2023, with a transition period to 1 October 2023 for the Modern Homes standards dealing with accessibility and energy efficiency.
The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) has established a Livable Housing Implementation Advisory Committee to work through any implementation issues.
The committee will provide direction on the ABCB’s preparation of Livable Housing guidance materials. These materials will support industry, practitioners and the community to successfully interpret and adhere to the new Livable Housing Design Standard (PDF, 2.63MB).
