  • NCC 2016 Consolidated Performance Requirements Amendment 1

    NCC 2016 Consolidated Performance Requirements was amended out-of-cycle prior to NCC 2019.

    The NCC is a performance-based code, consisting of Performance Requirements that specify the minimum level of performance for buildings, plumbing and drainage installations. The Performance Requirements and supporting General Requirements are the mandatory requirements of the code.

    The NCC 2016 Consolidated Performance Requirements Amendment 1 (Consolidated Requirements) has been developed to highlight the mandatory requirements of the NCC, foster a greater understanding of the NCC as a performance-based code and facilitate the increased use of performance-based solutions. Whilst not forming part of the NCC, it is intended to provide a compilation of all NCC Performance Requirements and the supporting General Requirements in a single document. It is guidance in nature.

    The Consolidated Requirements consists of:

    • General Requirements consolidated from NCC 2016 Volume One Amendment 1, Volume Two and Volume Three;
    • Performance Requirements extracted from NCC 2016 Volume One Amendment 1, Volume Two and Volume Three; and
    • State and Territory Additions and Variations relevant to the General Requirements and the Performance Requirements extracted from NCC 2016 Volume One Amendment 1, Volume Two and Volume Three.

     

    It has been styled based on a combination of all three Volumes of the NCC. Hence, numbering of similar sections in the Consolidated Requirements may be different to that of NCC 2016. The heading titles may be used to assist in finding the comparable headings in NCC 2016.
