Building Act

The Building Act 2004 has been enacted to provide for the regulation of building work, the establishment of a licensing regime for building practitioners, and the setting of performance standards for buildings to ensure that

  1. people who use buildings can do so safely and without endangering their health; and
  2.  buildings have attributes that contribute appropriately to the health, physical independence, and well-being of the people who use them; and
  3.  people who use a building can escape from the building if it is on fire; and
  4. buildings are designed, constructed, and able to be used in ways that promote sustainable development:

and to promote the accountability of owners, designers, builders, and building consent authorities who have responsibilities for ensuring that building work complies with the building code.
