The Act introduces a risk-based approach to the administration of building consent and inspection requirements to align the role of the building consent authorities with the risk involved. It clarifies the accountabilities of those involved in building design and construction, and provides an Owner-Builder exemption from Restricted Building Work for DIYers.

Further building reforms are contained in another Bill currently before parliament - see our article Building Reform Update in the business, legal & finance section of the site.
