This non-mandatory handbook produced by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) was updated in 2019 due to new condensation provisions introduced in the National Construction Code (NCC). The handbook is intended to assist architects, designers and builders in understanding the condensation requirements and provisions of Volumes One and Two of the NCC.
The handbook provides an introduction to condensation, provides guidance to practitioners on assessing its risk and consequences and discusses potential management options, including the NCC requirements.

The Handbook should be read in conjunction with your relevant state or territory building legislation.
