Providing access to buildings for people with disabilities is required under the National Construction Code (NCC) and the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).
The DDA requires equity in the provision of access and makes it unlawful to deny people with disabilities access to premises that the public or a section of the public is entitled to enter or use. The NCC includes minimum requirements for accessibility to and within a range of building types for all occupants.
