Events and seminars

Free 2020 NCC Seminar videos available

Due to the health risks associated with COVID-19 the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) was unable to deliver the 2020 National Construction Code (NCC) Seminars. Instead they have produced 12 videos which are focused on highlighting changes included in the NCC 2019 Amendment 1.

The videos are available to watch for free on the ABCB YouTube Channel or from their Resource Library.
