Against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has presented a variety of significant challenges for the building industry, regulators and consumers, Building Ministers have agreed to a four month delay to the adoption of NCC 2022.

NCC 2022 is now expected to be adopted by states and territories from 1 September 2022.

The delayed adoption will also see adjustments to key dates in the amendment cycle process for NCC 2022 to allow stakeholders time to participate. These adjusted dates include:

  • May - July 2021: NCC 2022 Public Comment Draft released for public consultation
  • May 2022: NCC 2022 Preview published at
