The scheme is designed to help building consent authorities when making decisions about consent applications. The CodeMark scheme is a trans-Tasman scheme and is jointly managed by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) and the New Zealand Department of Building and Housing (DBH).
CodeMark certification means that the product is deemed to comply with the New Zealand Building Code when specified in accordance with its technical specifications, and guarantees acceptance by the regulatory bodies ie. The Building Consent Authority (BCA).
While a building consent is still required, the Building Consent Authority (BCA) must accept the certified product or method of construction as compliant with the New Zealand Building Code when used in accordance with the CodeMark certificate. The product acceptance is guaranteed -- it's legislated -- so there is a level of assurance that comes with using a certified product such as Linea Weatherboard.
This third party scheme is designed to provide national consistency in the certification of new innovate building products. It helps you to quickly and easily identify products that have been proven to perform well when installed correctly, and removes the risk when selecting products to specify with.
Linea Weatherboard is durable, low-maintenance, comes with an extended paint warranty, can be painted any colour in the spectrum and can achieve up to a 90-minute fire rating.
CodeMark certification with guaranteed acceptance by the BCA is another fantastic reason to choose to specify with Linea Weatherboard.
