Is there an expiration date for when NVC will accept the PCC date. Example if my husband applies for his PCC now and gets it next month but NVC doesnt need it until February will they still accept it or does it need to be more.current? Sorry if my questions confusing.

Generally, PCC is valid for one year from the date of issue. I am not sure if there are some exceptions based on the beneficiary's consulate. Best place to confirm this would be under the immigrant visa section of the beneficiary's US consulate website.

it is country specific so you have to find out what obtains in the region where you will be getting your PCC from. in my place it is 3 months.
