The 2013 draft NCC is now open for public comment.


The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) has just released a draft version of the 2013 National Construction Code (NCC), formerly known as the Building Code of Australia (BCA).


The draft version of the NCC 2013 includes important changes to balustrade designs where stainless steel wire is being used.


What is an offset handrail?

What are the proposed changes?
If the proposed changes come into effect, as of 01 May 2013 the changes will require a 150mm offset handrail on all wire balustrades where the height of the deck, veranda or landing is between two (2) & four (4) meters. Please Note: No offset handrail will be required on stair, ramp, or landing sections or where vertical wires are being used.


How to have your say on the proposed regulations changes .....
The ABCB is seeking public comment on the draft proposal and we would strongly encourage you to have your say by submitting comments via the ABCB website.
