Given the recent adoption of the NCC 2019 on May 1 that now includes new provisions for accessible adult change facilities and ongoing consideration of changes to the accessibility requirements of the NCC and reference Australian Standards, a training session has been developed specifically for building surveyors, inspectors and design professionals.

  • The relationship between the NCC and Premises Standards
  • New access related provisions in the NCC 2019
  • Review of the access requirements of the NCC and Deemed-to-Satisfy referenced Australian Standards focussing on the functional use of buildings by people with disability
  • Use of Performance Solution approaches and the new verification methods focussing on Expert Judgements
  • Common interpretation and application issues that arise in relation to NCC and referenced Australian Standards
  • What is on the horizon? 
    • Work Standards Australia on new standards on wayfinding and fitout
    • Accessible housing 
    • Update on review of the Premises Standards and the work of the Expert Advisory Group

So, whether you are a building surveyor, inspector or a design professional, this training has been tailored for you.
