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.
Providing protection of people and other property during construction and demolition.
This clause ensures construction and demolition avoids the likelihood of objects falling onto people (and property) on or off site, and other hazards. For example, it prevents the unauthorised entry of children to hazards on site and requires barriers to restrict public access and provide safe routes.
Record of amendments is a record of changes to the Acceptable Solutions, Verification Methods and handbooks.
Digitising the Building Code
The Building performance team has started work to digitise the Building Code due to growing demands from building professionals who want vital information in a format that is portable, dynamic, feature-rich and digital. We have delivered the first of our Building Code PDF documents (B1, C/AS2, D1 and E2) into our digital reader.
Acceptable Solutions and Verification Methods
MBIE has historical versions of the code clause documents which can be located under 'Previous Versions' and 'Version History'. Alternatively if you cannot find the document you are looking for, you can send an email with the year and code clause you are after to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Determinations are made by MBIE on matters of doubt or dispute to do with building work. Rulings are legally binding in relation to each case. Circumstances in one case may differ to others.
