NCC changes information sheet

May 12, 2019

The 2019 edition of the NCC contains a number of significant changes affecting all classes of buildings, including houses, multi-residential buildings, mixed use buildings and commercial buildings.

For a summary of the changes, see HIA’s information sheet.

The Building Regulations in WA provide a 1 year transition period where either the current code or the one in effect 12 months ago can be used. This means that either the 2016 version or the 2019 version can be used until 1 May 2020. After that, the 2019 NCC must be used for building permits.

There are a few details around this, so to look a little closer, see HIA’s information sheet.
