NCC 2019 Public Comment Draft

The Property Council of Australia welcomes the opportunity to comment on the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB)'s Public Comment Draft of the National Construction Code (NCC) 2019 and provide feedback to the ABCB on how industry is responding to the proposed changes.

We have worked closely with ABCB via our involvement on the Building Codes Committee on technical working groups focused on providing feedback on much of the technical work underpinning the NCC 2019 Public Comment Draft. We've also gone to extra lengths to educate and involve our members in the process of reviewing the energy efficiency requirements in Section J, which we perceive to be the most significant with respect to broad change in industry practice.
