The NCC sets the minimum requirements for the design, construction and performance of buildings throughout Australia. Freely available from 1 May 2015, the Australian Building Codes Board no longer provides print copies. Instead, users can register for free and print their own copy of the National Construction Code in A4 format. Each registration will have its own unique login details.
NCC Essentials is a free education resource developed by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB). It provides a range of presentations on National Construction Code (NCC) related topics for educators, practitioners and students in the building and plumbing industry. These presentations aim to introduce the NCC and provide some examples to practically apply it. NCC Essentials makes it easier for everyone to understand and interpret the NCC in a simple, user-friendly way. The ready-made, simple presentation style makes NCC Essentials a great start if you are looking to build your knowledge or teach about the NCC.
Standards Australia, in partnership with the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) has launched an online dictionary for the building and plumbing industry which aims to assist industry, government and consumers by helping describe the built environment.
