We have issued a corrigendum for NCC 2019 and NCC 2019 Amendment 1.

NCC 2019 and NCC 2019 Amendment 1 reflect the expiry date ‘1 May 2022’ relevant to some referenced Australian Standards in the notes to Table 1 of Schedule 4. The date of 1 May 2022 was specified on the expectation that the 2022 edition of the NCC would be adopted by states and territories on this date.

It has since been agreed by Building Ministers to delay the adoption of NCC 2022 until 1 May 2023 in recognition of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the impacts to industry during a difficult economic time.

The corrigendum, initially released in April 2022 and updated today in light of more recent decisions by Building Ministers, provides advice to NCC users for alternative expiry arrangements. For notes 2 and 9 that concern the AS 1530 series and AS 4072.1, 1 May 2022 is replaced with 1 May 2023. In note 4 that relates to the AS 1670 series, 1 May 2022 has been replaced with adoption of NCC 2025.
