G8 Artificial light

Requires buildings to have sufficient artificial light to safeguard people from injury.

This clause requires spaces within buildings used by people to be provided with adequate artificial lighting to allow safe movement.

It requires illuminance of no less than 20 lux at floor level in exitways, access routes and common spaces within buildings. (Clause F6 ‘Visibility in escape routes” applies in the event of main lighting failure).

Updates

Acceptable Solutions and Verification Methods

Current version

These are issued by MBIE to provide one way of complying with the Building Regulations and must be accepted by BCAs as demonstrating compliance with the related clauses of the Building Regulations. Using them is not mandatory.

 

Acceptable Solutions and Verification Methods (AS and VMs) were called compliance documents. Some still have the “compliance document” title but the AS or VMs they contain are valid and unaffected by the name change.

Standards

Standards are frequently referred to in Acceptable Solutions and Verification Methods. They provide practical information and guidelines for building solutions.

Over 120 building standards used for Building Regulations compliance are now available for free download.

See the free standards relating to Code Clause G8.

All standards, including the funded ones, can be accessed through the Standards New Zealand website.

Related Determinations

Determinations are made by MBIE on matters of doubt or dispute to do with building work. Rulings are legally binding in relation to each case. Circumstances in one case may differ to others.
