From 1 February 2015, the National Construction Code (NCC) series, which includes the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and the Plumbing Code of Australia (PCA) is available free online.

Anyone who wants to access the NCC needs to register online to have free access to PDF versions of the three NCC Volumes and the Guide to the Volume 1.

By registering you will be able to view the current NCC 2014, which operates until 30 April 2015. You will also have able to access to the new NCC 2015 which starts on 1 May 2015.

Members can register through the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) webpage.

The ABCB has confirmed that it will not be publishing hard copies of the NCC from this year. However, the HIA will be offering hard copies of the NCC for sale to members and non-members who wish to obtain a hard copy version of the Code. NCC 2015 will be available for purchase through the HIA Shop prior 1 May. To register interest to purchase a copy, please email
