G14 Industrial liquid waste

Requires the safe and hygienic collection, treatment and disposal of industrial liquid waste to avoid contamination.

This clause ensures buildings in which industrial liquid waste or foul water is collected, generated, treated or disposed of are provided with adequate spaces and facilities to do so safely, avoiding the likelihood of blockage, leakage or contamination. It also sets requirements to prevent unauthorised access.

Record of amendments is a record of changes to the Acceptable Solutions, Verification Methods and handbooks.

Digitising the Building Code

The Building performance team has started work to digitise the Building Code due to growing demands from building professionals who want vital information in a format that is portable, dynamic, feature-rich and digital. We have delivered the first of our Building Code PDF documents (B1, C/AS2, D1 and E2) into our digital reader.

More information on our digital reader.

Acceptable Solutions and Verification Methods

Current version

MBIE has historical versions of the code clause documents which can be located under 'Previous Versions' and 'Version History'. Alternatively if you cannot find the document you are looking for, you can send an email with the year and code clause you are after to info@building.govt.nz.

 

Acceptable Solutions and Verification Methods (AS and VMs) were called compliance documents. Some still have the “compliance document” title but the AS or VMs they contain are valid and unaffected by the name change.

Standards

Standards are frequently referred to in Acceptable Solutions and Verification Methods. They provide practical information and guidelines for building solutions.

Over 120 building standards used for Building Code compliance are now available for free download.

See the free standards relating to Code Clause G14.

All standards, including the funded ones, can be accessed through the Standards New Zealand website.

Related Determinations

Determinations are made by MBIE on matters of doubt or dispute to do with building work. Rulings are legally binding in relation to each case. Circumstances in one case may differ to others.
