National Construction Code
The Building Codes Committee has agreed to the following documents as being suitable for referencing in the 2019 edition of the NCC.
In the interim, these documents may be considered for use as part of a Performance Solution.
- Amendment 2 to AS 2047-2014, Windows and external glazed doors in buildings.
- Amendment 1 to AS 4586-2013, Slip resistance classification of new pedestrian surface materials.
In considering referencing the amendments to the above listed standards in the NCC, the Building Codes Committee agreed transitional arrangements are necessary to ensure industry will not have to retest a significant number of products in order to demonstrate NCC compliance to the new testing standard. When referenced in the 2019 edition of the NCC, appropriate notes will be added to Specification A1.3 and Table 1.4.1 for transition purposes.
Readers will recall from previously published related information provided in ABCB Connect, the ABCB has established an initiative to promote revised or amended documents which are not referenced in the NCC that may be suitable for use as part of a Performance Solution.
The list of documents, including referenced NCC Volumes, is available for your information.
