Initial Scoping Work for Implementation of NEPP 31 – Advancing the National Construction Code


Department of Industry, Innovation and Science



This report was commissioned by the former Department of Industry, Innovation and Science as an input to Measure 31 in the National Energy Productivity Plan, 'Advancing the National Construction Code'.

The report identifies two prioritised short-term research programs that could be undertaken to inform a future regulation impact statement (RIS) – that is likely to be undertaken in early 2017 – relating to possible changes to the energy performance requirements for residential buildings in the 2019 edition of the National Construction Code.
