Here are some of the items BEAL would like to see the new Minister of Building & Construction look at this year:
- Review of wording used in some Clauses of the New Zealand Building Code. As the most experienced building product certifier in New Zealand, BEAL has found the wording in some Clauses to be unworkable and such a review is overdue;
- Review of the CodeMark Scheme Rules, especially around the operation of certain requirements such as auditing of factories;
- Review of certain definitions within the Building Act, which are creating uncertainty over compliance for both BCAs and building owners.
