The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) has proposed changes to its National Construction Code (NCC) which is scheduled to come into effect in 2020. These changes will only affect buildings within Class 2 and Class 3 which are more than 2 storeys and of Type A or Type B Construction.

As at August 2019, the NCC has not changed. Standing concessions still apply to current builds that have been approved. No retrospective issues will arise with buildings already approved and no product will need to be removed/replaced after these changes come into effect.
