What we do
The Building System Performance branch, within MBIE, is the central regulator and steward of New Zealand’s building and construction system. It sets the strategic direction for the building system as well as providing policy and technical advice on rules, regulations and legislation for the building system to meet New Zealand’s current and future needs.
A key priority for the branch in the coming year is improving the building regulatory system to be more user-centric. This work is crucial in providing New Zealand with safe and durable buildings by delivering a confident and efficient regulatory system to enhance the performance of the construction sector and balance accountabilities.
