New and amended Australian Standards for NCC 2022

Along with the changes within NCC 2022 a number of the Australian Standards have been reviewed and amended as part of the overall changes to Volumes One, Two and Three.

Australian Standards referenced in the NCC are periodically amended or revised, and occasionally new Standards are introduced, and these are then incorporated into the NCC when it is revised through its normal revision cycle.
Are these new standards currently in effect? 

The new editions of these standards will take effect alongside NCC 2022 from 1 May 2023.
