Outcome of 2020 Building Code Update

The proposed updates to the Building Code in November 2020 relate to amending Acceptable Solutions and Verification Methods documents, which are issued under section 22 of the Building Act 2004.

Between 17 February and 17 April 2020, MBIE consulted on proposals to issue two new Acceptable Solutions and amend twelve existing Acceptable Solutions and Verification Methods. In total, there were 27 amendments proposed across 12 documents.

Submissions came from a range of people in the building and construction sector, including building consent authorities (BCAs), designers, builders, home owners, suppliers and manufacturers.

After analysing feedback that was received during the consultation process, MBIE has decided to proceed with the majority of proposed changes, with some minor amendments.
