Building System Legislative Reform


The Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment has released a set of proposals to amend the regulatory settings for the building industry. These have implications for backflow and plumbing related matters. There may also be implications in the approach being taken to registration of engineers for our sector, but it isn’t clear. The document can be accessed here. Submissions close 17 June. We will be making a submission and circulating a draft for comment in due course. If members believe there are issues they would like us to focus on please let Noel Roberts know.
