BuiltReady

BuiltReady is a voluntary offsite manufacturer certification scheme that has been designed to support innovative and efficient building methods, giving consumers more building choices and reduced building and consenting times and costs.

BuiltReady is suitable for offsite manufacturers based in New Zealand and overseas that design (where relevant), manufacture, assemble, transport and install modular components.

A modular component that has a certificate that was issued by a registered manufacturer must be accepted by Building Consent Authorities as meeting the requirements of the New Zealand Building Code when used in accordance with details on the certificate.

BuiltReady will be open for applications from certification bodies in late 2022 and open for applications by manufacturers in 2023.
