The new series of 'Understanding the NCC' resources continues to be a popular addition to the Resource Library.

In the last month, two new resources have been added, 'How to comply with the NCC' and 'Using Assessment Methods'. They provide guidance on the various ways to demonstrate compliance with the NCC.

How to comply with the NCC

This resource provides guidance on the pathways to comply with the NCC’s mandatory Performance Requirements. It steps through the compliance pathways for:

  1. Performance Solutions
  2. Deemed to Satisfy Solutions, and
  3. A combination of Performance Solutions and Deemed to Satisfy Solutions.

This resource is useful for all users of the NCC, partially new users, students and educators.

Using Assessment Methods

Assessment Methods are approaches used to formulate a Performance Solution or a Deemed-to-Satisfy Solution. Understanding the different requirements of each Assessment Method is important when demonstrating a building or plumbing solution meets the NCC’s Performance Requirements.

This resource is useful for all users of the NCC, particularly if using a Performance Solution. It is also useful for new users of the NCC including students and educators.
