One of the benefits of joining a Brick and Blocklayers Association is the assistance you receive when building laws change.

Industry Helping Industry

On 1 January 2015 the Building (Consumer Rights and Remedies) Regulations 2014 came into effect.  You can read these here: 

http://www.legislation.govt.nz/regulation/public/2014/0361/latest/DLM6322564.html?src=qs

One of the functions of BBFNZ is to ensure members are made aware and understand new regulations that impact on them.  BBFNZ has provided Association members with a Help Sheet on these new requirements.  You can view this here: BBFNZ Consumer Rights and Remedies Help Sheet

BBFNZ also develops resources for Association members to help them comply with these requirements.
