Have your say on Acceptable Solution and Verification Method updates

The third update in the new biannual Building Code (BC) system update programme proposes a package of changes, on which the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is seeking comment from you.

Submissions close on the 13th September. If you haven’t yet given us your feedback and want to, you can find the consultation documents on the MBIE website.

The most significant changes proposed aim to support higher-density housing by providing safer building solutions and increased design options. We are focusing on improving the long-term resilience of buildings in areas with liquefaction-prone ground, and providing a further compliance pathway for light steel framing. MBIE welcomes your feedback on the proposed changes.
