Performance solutions

Plumbing work must comply with the performance requirements of the Plumbing Code of Australia (PCA). This can be achieved using the deemed-to-satisfy (prescriptive) method, a performance solution, or a combination of both. More details are provided in the National Construction Code.

If you intend to use a performance solution for a plumbing installation, you need to be aware of the process and requirements for this method.

For a summary of how to develop a performance solution, view the video below.

We have also developed an information guide outlining the expected process and requirements for carrying out performance solutions for plumbing installations.

The National Construction Code website also has information on performance solutions.
