Maintaining and building on your NCC knowledge is important.

The NCC is amended every 3 years. Advances in technology, innovation in design and environmental impacts are just a few of the many factors that influence change, and how you may use the NCC.

The ABCB enables practitioners, educators and students to access quality education and supporting material so that they can better understand and competently use the NCC.


The Guide to Volume One provides guidance on the intent of NCC provisions. It is available alongside Volume One in NCC online. Additional guidance is provided in the other volumes in the explanatory information boxes. 


We develop resources for educators to use in their training and courses to encourage consistent education of the NCC. We also work to improve coverage of the NCC in relevant higher education and VET curriculum.
