Proposed changes to the Plumbing Code of Australia

Laws, regulations & standards

The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) updates the National Construction Code (NCC), which includes the Plumbing Code of Australia, every three years. The consultation phase for the 2025 revision is underway and because the ABCB wants to share information and get feedback, they are running a roadshow series in May and June, plus two webinars in May specifically for plumbers.

The ABCB explains the proposed changes to all parts of the NCC in the NCC 2025 Public Comment Draft.

Anyone can give feedback via the Consultation Hub until Monday 1 July 2024.

The dedicated plumbing webinars will run for one hour from 2:30 - 3:30 pm (AEST) on Wednesday 22 May and Thursday 23 May 2024. They will cover proposed plumbing changes only.
