AFPA is writing to express the wood products industry’s support for the current Industry Proposal for Change (PfC) to the National Construction Code (NCC) 2016 Volume 1 Public Comment Draft, for the inclusion of fire-protected timber construction systems in Class 2 (apartments), Class 3 (hotels) and Class 5 (offices) buildings up to 25 metres in effective height.

The forest and wood products industry looks forward to the inclusion of fire-protected timber construction in the amended NCC 2016.
