Building Consent Authority Accreditation Scheme evaluation

The Building Consent Authority Accreditation Scheme sets out the minimum policies, procedures and systems that a building consent authority must have, and consistently and effectively implement, to perform its building control functions.

The evaluation found that overall the scheme is achieving its intended outcomes, and is also contributing to wider outcomes.  This means that most BCAs have robust and consistent policies, procedures and systems, and that poor performance is made known to MBIE, so appropriate support can be provided.
