Building System Regulatory Strategy

The Building System Regulatory Strategy – Building for the Future - outlines MBIE’s vision for the future of building regulation over the next 10 to 15 years. Launched in 2020, it sets out clear and measurable goals and action points for MBIE to achieve a high-performing building regulatory system.

The Strategy focuses on how MBIE can contribute to addressing some of the big challenges the building system needs to overcome.  It aims to get the system thinking beyond the “bricks and mortar” of design and construction and on achieving positive social, economic and environmental outcomes for New Zealand and New Zealanders, now and in the future.

MBIE will work with participants across the system to ensure the building regulatory system is heading in the right direction.

Building for the Future Indicators Explorer

The Building for the Future Indicators Explorer is a new online tool that provides a snapshot of New Zealand’s building system across social, economic and environmental indicators. The explorer collates data from a range of sources and presents this in one place to track the building system’s progress against the outcomes identified in the 'Building System Regulatory Strategy – Building for the Future'. Data will be updated regularly and further information will be added as it becomes available over the next 10-15 years.
