Acceptable Solutions and Verification Methods (AS and VMs) were called compliance documents. Some still have the “compliance document” title but the AS or VMs they contain are valid and unaffected by the name change.
The Simple House Acceptable Solution is for single storey framed construction using limited roof spans and claddings.
SH/AS1 has been revoked and is no longer a deemed-to-comply solution.
Content from SH/AS1 could be used as part of an Alternative Solution.
MBIE consulted on revoking SH/AS1 in early 2019 due to its low uptake. Submitters noted that some unique content within the solution was applicable to other residential buildings so after a thorough review of this content, we transferred relevant material to B1/AS1.
