ABCB issue corrigendum amendment for NCC 2019

The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) have released a corrigendum for the National Construction Code (NCC) 2019 and NCC 2019 amendment 1 to extend the date relevant to some referenced Australian Standards notes and provide industry with additional time to update test reports based on previous editions of the relevant standards.

NCC Adoption Date

The reasoning behind the issuing of the corrigendum is due to NCC 2019 and NCC 2019 Amendment 1 containing an expiry date of ‘1 May 2022’ relevant to some notes based on previous editions of a number of referenced Australian Standards in the notes to Table 1 of Schedule 4. 

This date was specified on the expectation that the 2022 edition of the NCC would be adopted by States and Territories on this date.

It has since been agreed by Building Ministers to delay the adoption of NCC 2022 until 1 September 2022 in recognition of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the impacts to industry during a difficult economic time.

Due to industry feedback, including that provided by HIA, the ABCB have now agreed to amend the expiry dates of these notes to the relevant referenced documents to reflect the delayed introduction of NCC 2022 out to 1 September 2022, and to provide additional time to update a range of test reports based on previous editions of relevant Australian Standards.

What referenced documents does the corrigendum relate to?

The corrigendum changes the expiry dates that are contained in notes 2 and 9, associated with Schedule 4 ‘Referenced Documents, that concern the AS 1530 series and AS 4072.1. 

The note to AS 1530 permitting use of reports relating to tests carried out under earlier editions of AS 1530 Parts 1, 2 and 4 has been amended to include an expiry date of 1 September 2022.

The note to AS 4072.1 permitting use of reports relating to tests carried out under AS 1530.4 prior to 1 January 1995 has been amended to include an expiry date of 1 September 2022.

These two changes relate to NCC 2019 only and the adoption of NCC 2022 in September 2022.

In note 4 that relates to the AS 1670 series, (in reference to systems tested to AS 1530.4) 1 May 2022 has been replaced with adoption of NCC 2025.

What does this mean for industry?

As the corrigendum extends the transition period for AS 1530 parts 1-4 test certificates until 1 September 2022 in lieu of 1 May 2022, this means that industry can continue to rely on certificates or reports based on the older versions of the standard up to 1 September 2022.

This also provides that manufacturers who are presently waiting to get their test certificates updated have an extra 4 months for this to occur, which will assist industry greatly.
