Building Regulations compliance

Complying with the Building Regulations

All building work in New Zealand must comply with the Building Regulations, even if it doesn’t require a building consent. This ensures buildings are safe, healthy and durable for everyone who may use them.

Plans and specifications are assessed by building consent authorities (BCAs), usually the council, to ensure the proposed building work will comply with the Building Regulations. When the BCA is satisfied, it will issue a building consent for the work to proceed. If the work is built to the consented plans and receives a code compliance certificate, it confirms the requirements of the Building Regulations have been met.

The Building Regulations is contained in regulations under the Building Act 2004. The Act governs the building sector and also sets out the rules for the construction, alteration, demolition and maintenance of new and existing buildings in New Zealand. It works alongside other legislation for health, safety, consumer protection and land use.
