NZ Building Code Clauses...

The New Zealand Building Code (NZBC) is the compliance framework to which all buildings in NZ must conform. It sets the minimum legal requirements for building work in NZ. The New Zealand Building Code (NZBC) is a schedule of the regulations authorised by the Act. It contains the mandatory provisions for meeting the purposes of the Act and is performance based. This means it says only what is to be done not how to do it.
