Issue 24 – February 2011
On 30 June 2010 the Department of Building and Housing (DBH) published amendments to 11 Compliance Documents that came into effect on 30 September 2010. DBH has since published errata to the B1 Structure and E1 Surface Water Compliance Documents. Amended PDFs are on the DBH website and replacement pages to E1 have been mailed out by DBH.
The errors are as follows:
- Verification Method B1/VM1 contained a typo in paragraph 3.1(c), which references a nonexistent paragraph (C19.6.7 (e)) in NZS 3101 Part 1
- in Acceptable Solution E1/AS1, Figure 16 was inadvertently published as a repeat of Figure 15.
Summarised from Codewords November/December 2010, Department of Building and Housing.
