The Building Act requires all building work, and therefore all building products, to comply with the 'performance requirements' of the New Zealand Building Code.
BEAL provides an independent means of demonstrating compliance of an installer or applicator of a nominated building product, in order to ensure the performance requirements of the New Zealand Building Code (NZBC) are met.
In order to demonstrate that all requirements of the New Zealand Building Code are being "continuously complied with", it is necessary for the building product supplier to have a Quality Assurance Programme in place, which includes the management of the training and competence of all applicators/ installers of the building product supplier's products.
For this reason BEAL provide third party verification of the efficacy of the building product supplier's QA Programme, which also means verifying the training and competence of each installer or applicator. A special logo demonstrating 'verification' has been developed by BEAL.
