MBIE PRODUCT ASSURANCE SEMINARS FOR ALL SUPPLIERS AND MANUFACTURERS

The following is the text of a press release from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment

We invite you to attend a free product assurance seminar presented by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) – learn about the legal requirements for building product manufacturers and suppliers under the Building Act and how to comply with them.

The Building Act (Section 14G) requires building product manufacturers and suppliers to ensure that their product will comply with relevant Building Code clauses, provided it is installed in accordance with the information they provide. Both specifiers and Building Consent Authorities (councils) rely on information provided by product manufacturers and suppliers to satisfy themselves the product is fit for purpose.

MBIE can help you work out what information you need to provide and the best format to present it in. Getting this right will not only ensure you meet the legal requirements, but can also significantly improve your product’s acceptance in the market.
