Referral to Fire and Emergency NZ

Some applications are required by law to be sent to the Fire and Emergency New Zealand (“FENZ”) for review.
Applications required to be reviewed by FENZ are:

  • Alternative solution fire designs.
  • Applications that involve modifications or waiver of clauses C1-6, D1, F6 or F8 of the New Zealand Building Code.
  • Applications that involve an alteration, change of use, or subdivision that affects the fire safety systems of a building, including any building work on a specified system relating to fire safety, unless the fire safety system is minor.

We will send relevant applications to FENZ as part of the application process, with any costs incurred recovered from the applicant.
