Mission

We want everyone to have safe, healthy, durable homes and buildings, supporting MBIE's goal to grow New Zealand for all.

Our aspirations are echoed in our Māori identity – Hīkina Whakatutuki – which broadly means "lifting to make successful”.

The building sector is crucial to New Zealand’s economy. It contributes more than 6 percent to our gross domestic product (GDP) and employs more than 250,000 people. A well-functioning sector will have a positive effect on our country’s health, economic stability, security and social cohesion.

The building sector is the third largest industry in our economy by business-count. It is characterised by large numbers of small, diverse businesses working to a performance-based building regulatory system that continues to mature.

We aim to make sure everyone involved in building work has the information they need to undertake building work, and can quickly and easily access and understand it. We provide authoritative information and guidelines on building-related regulation, rights and obligations. 

The organization has no registered commitments.

The Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments (SFVC) online platform allows stakeholders to inform the public about their work on DRR. The SFVC online platform is a useful toolto know who is doing what and where for the implementation of the Sendai Framework, which could foster potential collaboration among stakeholders. All stakeholders (private sector, civil society organizations, academia, media, local governments, etc.) working on DRR can submit their commitments and report on their progress and deliverables.'|t }}
