Plumbing Acceptable Solutions
NCC Volume Three (PCA) was originally developed on the basis that the Australian/New Zealand Standards referenced within it provided all of the necessary solutions required for compliance. To encourage greater practitioner use of the PCA and improved understanding of the basic requirements for plumbing, a set of simplified solutions is being developed for inclusion in the PCA.
The solutions will work in a similar way to the Acceptable Construction Practice contained within NCC Volume Two in that they will provide an alternative means of compliance for clearly identified installations.
This project is consistent with the Board’s 2016-21 Strategic Plan, which has outcomes of wide community and industry support for the NCC, a well understood and utilised code, and improved code compliance.
