These changes support greater opportunity for innovation and economies of scale, and improve trust and confidence in the building sector. With these changes we aim to:
- introduce minimum information requirements about building products to support better and more efficient decision-making
- introduce a specialist framework for modern methods of construction such as offsite manufacturing and prefabrication and speed up the consenting process
- strengthen the product certification framework (CodeMark) to improve trust and confidence in the scheme.
Based on this decision, it now means that regulations can begin development and we expect these to be approved by mid-2022.
