NaCl have ccp or fcc arrangement. Each Na+ ion octahedrally surrounded by 6 Cl- ions similarly each Cl- ion octahedrally surrounded by 6 Na+ ions. FCC means face centered cubic and CCP means cubic closed packing structure of NaCl.

Four sodium ions and four chloride ions are present in a unit cell of sodium chloride crystal. Chloride ions form cubic closed packing (ccp) arrangement and sodium ions occupy octahedral sites. There are 8 chloride ions at 8 corners of a cube and 6 chloride ions at 6 face centres
