Starting on December 11, 2023, revised regulations pertaining to Building Product Information Requirements (BPIR) will come into force here in New Zealand.
The primary objective of these regulations is to provide users of building products with detailed information regarding their role in aligning with the Building Code. They also establish responsibilities for Aotearoa New Zealand-based manufacturers, importers, wholesalers, retailers, and distributors.
As QPOD is a building product that is registered under the CodeMark scheme, it is not impacted by these new set of regulations, but we thought it might be useful to give an overview of the regulatory change afoot.
The full details of the new building product information requirement regulations and how they will benefit the building sector are available here on the building.govt.nz website, whilst the video below gives a great overview of what the requirements are, and how they’ll benefit the building sector here in New Zealand.
