On 9th May 2022, The Australian Building Codes Board published the preview of the National Construction Code 2022 for early childhood services. Most of the emphasis is on extra security measures of the risks associated with evacuating children from multi-storey buildings. These key changes will be adopted and implemented on 1 September 2022.
Seminars by the ABCB will be held across Australia to learn about what has changed, and what it means to you and your industry before the 2022 edition of the NCC is adopted by early childhood services on 1 September 2022.
This is your opportunity to hear from experts about key changes to Volume One and Volume Two, including:
- New volume structure and clause referencing system
- Fire safety for external walls
- Egress provisions for early childhood centres and primary schools
- Bushfire protection for Class 9 buildings
- And much more...

The Australian Building Codes Board has been working with Australian Government colleagues, Industry, and State and Territory Regulatory Authorities to identify further safeguards for services located in multi-storey buildings.
