On 30th May 2014, the Australian Building Ministers' Forum agreed to make the National Construction Code (NCC) 2015, and future editions, freely available online. Our BCA Illustrated Online and BCA Illustrated Desktop products are based on Volume 1 and Volume 2 of the NCC.
This reform means that the Hendry Group will not be providing BCA Illustrated Online or BCA Illustrated Desktop for the 2015 edition and beyond. The BCA Illustrated (www.bcaillustrated.com.au) website, BCA Illustrated Online and BCA Illustrated Desktop will only be operating until 30 April 2015. This 2014 edition will be the last.
A subscription to BCA Illustrated is for 12 months. So, we are not accepting new or renewing subscriptions unless you understand and agree that your subscription will end on the 30th April 2015 whether the 12 months is up or not. It is not viable for us to lessen the price the closer we get to the 30th April 2015 because of the commercial arrangements with the ABCB.
