The checklists below list the requirements that must be met before your designs and Notice of Practical Completion can be submitted to nbn.

nbn's design support tool

To ensure premises have a smooth connection to nbn services, developers and consultants must submit build designs for comment and approval by nbn. To support the creation of these designs, nbn has created the Assisted Drafting Tool (ADT). The ADT is an AutoCAD template that contains all the standards and symbols needed to help develop designs and streamline the design review process. Click through to download the ADT below.

Work with an nbn® trained New Developments supplier

We encourage developers (big and small) to seek the assistance and support of an industry professional or an nbn trained New Developments supplier - designer or installer. As it’s your responsibility to ensure the design and build of the nbn® infrastructure within your property boundary meets our standards, the assistance of an expert can be extremely helpful.
