Please note that NZS 1170.5:2004 excluding Amendment 1 is cited in the building code and available here

Provides procedures for the determination of earthquake actions on structures in New Zealand. It gives the requirements for verification procedures, site hazard determination, the evaluation of structural characteristics, structural analysis for earthquake action effects, the determination and limits for deformations and the seismic design of parts of structures. It is to be applied in conjunction with AS/NZS 1170 parts 0, 1, 2 and 3. Appendices cover aspects of ultimate limit state design and the requirements for material specific structural design standards that are able to be used in conjunction with NZS 1170.5. This standard is used by structural engineers to assess and calculate the forces and deformations from earthquakes acting on structures such as buildings and other structures. It helps engineers design structures that comply with the New Zealand Building Code’s earthquake resistance requirements.
