Standards

Standards are important tools for ensuring compliance with the Building Code. Many Acceptable Solutions and Verification Methods in the Building Code refer to Standards.

Funded standards

Over 120 building standards used for Building Code compliance have been funded for free download(external link) thanks to a collaboration between MBIE and Standards New Zealand. The purpose of funded standards is to reduce barriers to compliance with the Building Code.
