NCC updates - be ready for May 1st 2019!

Updated: Jan 15


BA&A certifiers will support you to cut through the clutter.


Many clients have been asking about how significant the NCC changes will be. We want to help you avoid any certification hassles by passing on the insights we have gained so far. All building classes will be affected. As specialists for certification of  class 1 and 10 buildings, BA&A is pleased to note that Volume 2 has fewer changes, though the order has adjusted.


As well as NCC changes, as outlined by the ABCB, many referenced standards have been revised and updated.




According to the HIA, changes to the following will apply for low rise buildings:

  • AS/NZS 2918 - Solid Fuel Burning devices 

  • AS 35000.3 - Plumbing installations - Stormwater drainage

  • AS 3700 - Masonry structures

  • AS 4200 - Pliable building membranes

  • AS 5113 - Facade assembly testing standard - Classification of external walls of buildings based on reaction to fire performance

  • AS5146 - Autoclaved Aerated Concrete standard

  • AS 1562.1 - Metal Roofing and AS 2050 - Roof Tiling
