The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) has been directed by the Building Ministers’ Forum (BMF) to investigate possible changes to the energy efficiency provisions, with an emphasis on residential buildings in the 2022 edition of the National Construction Code (NCC).
The ABCB has produced a scoping study to begin the process. The study outlines a possible approach and scope for the project.
The consultation is divided into two key sections:
- Residential energy efficiency
- Commercial energy efficiency.
The primary purpose of the study is to seek initial views on the proposed approach and scope of future changes to the NCC energy efficiency provisions.
The consultation form closes on Sunday, September 8.
