New or unsettled science can become apparent at the starting up of a standards development project. Here is an outline of the roles and responsibilities of the various stakeholders.
Over 120 building standards used for Building Code compliance have been funded for free download thanks to a successful collaboration between MBIE (Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment ) and Standards New Zealand. This is great news for the industry and the public.
Following joint work between the Prime Minister’s Chief Science Advisor (PMCSA) and the Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment (MBIE) on the science-focussed elements of future standards development, Standards New Zealand will now seek the involvement of the MBIE Chief Science Advisor when developing new standards or revising existing standards which include new or unsettled science.
We have moved offices to Level 3, TSB Tower, 147 Lambton Quay, Wellington 6011.
However, some meetings may still be held at the MBIE main building at 15 Stout St, which is just around the corner. Please check the address details if you receive a meeting invitation from one of our team.
Our postal address remains the same: PO Box 1473, Wellington 6140.

Packaging has come a very long way since its humble beginnings of gourds and clay pots. These days, the world of packaging is much more complex, needing to be safe and sustainable while remaining appealing and functional.
