The latest round of changes to the National Construction Code are now in effect and will apply to the entire building and construction industry.

If you're not working with the right version of the NCC, you're in breach of their statutory and contractual obligations, so make sure you're across the 2019 changes.

Overall, the layout to the NCC has changed to improve accessibility by introducing a consistent format and includes new verification methods and acceptable construction practices.

There is also a significant change to the NCC as a performance-based code. An estimated 40% of the Performance Requirements can now be quantified by a Deemed to Satisfy (DTS) method or by using a Verification Methpd (VM).

The remaining performance requirements of the codes will be quantified by a DTS or VM for NCC 2022.

Changes in Volume 1 apply to Class 2 to 9 buildings, while changes in Volume 2 apply to Class 1 to 10 buildings.
