The preview for NCC 2022 will be available from 9 May 2022.

We would like practitioners to be aware of important dates for the release of NCC 2022, which include:

  • 9 May 2022 –  Preview available at (excluding energy efficiency and condensation)
  • 1 September 2022 – Adoption by states and territories

Building Ministers have agreed to delay the adoption of NCC 2022 in recognition of the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the impacts to industry during a difficult economic time. We hope the delayed adoption date will make it easier for industry to adjust, and the extended preview period provide time for users to become familiar with the changes before NCC 2022 is made mandatory under state and territory legislation.

The May preview of NCC 2022 will not include energy efficiency and condensation amendments as these have not yet been endorsed by Building Ministers. Practitioners can still expect a preview of these amendments prior to adoption – and we will provide more information on that timing as it becomes available.

2022 NCC Seminars

To assist practitioners to adjust to significant reforms, the ABCB will again be hosting its annual national seminar series for Volumes One and Two through July and August 2022. Read our news article to find out when we’ll be in your capital city.

We will also host a separate national seminar series for amendments to the NCC 2022 Volume Three. Further information when these will be held and how to secure your place will be available on the our website soon.
