Review of the Building Consent System
The Government is reviewing the building consent system, as part of the Building System Reforms. This is an end-to-end review of the building consent system – from the building design phase through to the issuing of a code compliance certificate.
MBIE seeks your feedback on issues with the current building consent system. We have published an issues discussion document that identifies four desirable outcomes that an efficient and effective building consent system should have. It also identifies a number of issues that are barriers to achieving this. We want to know whether we have identified the right outcomes and issues, and whether there are others that should be considered.
