BPIR Verification Scheme (NZ)

Building Product Information Requirements (BPIR) are a comprehensive set of requirements. These requirements are stipulated by MBIE (New Zealand), defining the essential information and documentation necessary to be provided to consumers for designated building products.

These regulations help building product users to determine how products comply with the Building Code. It is mandatory for manufacturers, importers, wholesalers and retailers to comply with this regulation.
