What is a PS?
A PS is a document issued by a producer statement author – a council-approved expert registered with us.
A PS gives evidence that design or building work complies, or will comply, with the Building Code and helps us make a decision to issue a building consent or a
Code of Compliance Certificate (CCC).
Some examples of work that may need a producer statement are:
- structural engineering
- geotechnical engineering.
How to prove that your building work complies with the Building Code through a PS
We may accept the PS alone as evidence that the design or building work complies, or will comply, with the Building Code.
Depending on the nature of your project and the quality assurance systems that the builder has on site, we may require additional information.
Design category producer statements (PS1 and PS2)
PS design and design review professionals issue PS1 and PS2 that confirm that they have designed your building work in accordance with New Zealand Building Code (NZBC) requirements.
