National Construction Code Series

The National Construction Code (NCC)

The NCC has been developed to incorporate all on-site construction requirements into a single performance-based code.  This provides flexibility through the use of the Deemed-to-Satisfy Provisions or the development of Alternative Solutions based on existing or new and innovative building, plumbing and drainage products, systems and designs.

The NCC Comprises:

NCC Volume One - Containing the requirements for multi-residential, commercial, industrial and public buildings.

NCC Volume Two - Containing the requirements for residential buildings.

NCC Volume Three - Containing the plumbing and drainage requirements for all classes of buildings.

The NCC Volumes One, Two and Three contain Verification Methods, Deemed-to-Satisfy Provisions and Referenced Documents to assist practitioners in demonstrating compliance with the relevant Performance Requirements.
