CodeMark Information

A CodeMark Certificate establishes non-contestable compliance with the relevant performance requirements of the New Zealand or Australian Building Code. It is used when notifying the Building Consent Authority or Australian Certifier at the commencement of building work when using your building product.

BEAL Certification Service Limited (BCS) provides unbiased, technically robust assessments for the certification of building products. A CodeMark Certificate from BCS also provides a much higher level of proof and assurance of performance than other forms of compliance. This means that users of a BCS CodeMark have a higher level of confidence about the quality and performance of your product.
