Last updated: 13 November 2019
The National Construction Code (NCC) has moved to a three year amendment cycle which resulted in an unprecedented level of changes that affect the residential building industry.

From March 2019, HIA partnered with James Hardie and Independent Hardware Group to hold nationwide seminars in preparation for the key changes that came into effect on 1 May 2019.

Check out the videos taken from a few of the sessions held across the various regions. The videos show some of the key changes to the National Construction Code (NCC) Vol 1 and 2 as well as changes to the Australian Standards.
