CodeMark Information

NOTE: BEAL Certification Service has had its ability to issue CodeMark Certification temporarily suspended from midday 13th December. For clarification of this, please call the office at 04 233 6661.

The purpose of gaining a CodeMark Certificate is to establish non-contestable compliance with the relevant performance requirements of the New Zealand Building Code (or BCA in Australia), for use when notifying the Building Consent Authority (or Australian Certifier) of the commencement of building work, either requiring a ‘building consent’ or not.

BEAL Certification Service Limited (BCS) provides impartial, objective, experienced certification of building products as proof of compliance with the Building Code. Certification ensures acceptance by all Councils or Certifiers within New Zealand or Australia. A CodeMark Certificate from BCS also provides a much higher level of proof and assurance of performance than other forms of compliance. In other words it requires a much more rigorous process.

The following documents explain the process and what information is required to make an application for certification resulting in a CodeMark certificate.
