AUST – The Proposal for Change (PFC) process is used to consider technical proposals to change the NCC, which could relate to either the BCA (Volumes One and Two), or the PCA (Volume Three). Technical proposals do not include those which address matters of public policy or for which direction from government is required before a change to the NCC can be considered. The PFC process is consistent with the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) best practice regulatory principles to ensure appropriate rigour is used in the assessment of proposals.
For a Proposal for Change to be considered for inclusion in the next edition, the ABCB must receive submissions by 1 September 2017.
