Building System Regulatory Strategy

The Building System Regulatory Strategy – Building for the Future - outlines MBIE's vision for the future of building regulation over the next 10 to 15 years.

In 2020, MBIE launched its Building System Regulatory Strategy – Building for the Future, which sets out a vision for the future of building regulation over the next 10 to 15 years.

The strategy focuses on how MBIE, as a building system regulator can achieve a high-performing building regulatory system. It aims to shift thinking beyond the "bricks and mortar" of design and construction to achieving positive social, economic and environmental outcomes for New Zealand and New Zealanders, now and in the future.

The strategy will evolve over time as it is developed in consultation with others and through measuring progress.

Building for the Future – Indicators Explorer

The Building for the Future Indicators Explorer is a new online tool that provides a snapshot of New Zealand's building system across social, economic and environmental indicators.

The explorer collates data from a range of sources and presents this in one place to track the building system's progress against the outcomes identified in the Building System Regulatory Strategy – Building for the Future.

Data will be updated regularly and further information will be added as it becomes available over the next 10-15 years.
