CertMark International Pty Ltd (CMI) has withdrawn from the New Zealand CodeMark scheme effective from midnight 22 July 2019. This follows its recent suspension as a product certification body (PCB) by the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ).

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is contacting all CMI product certificate holders and other PCBs to notify them of the withdrawal and the next steps that need to be taken.

All current CodeMark product certificates issued by CMI remain valid, and can continue to be relied on by Building Consent Authorities (BCAs) as long as they remain on the MBIE CodeMark New Zealand product certificate register. MBIE recommends BCAs check the register before issuing any new building consents involving certificates issued by CMI.

To see a current list of accredited PCBs, visit Applying for CodeMark.

To confirm the status of a product certificate, please check MBIE’s Product certificate register.

Any questions regarding the withdrawal of CMI can be sent to products@mbie.govt.nz.
