This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a two year-old house because it was not satisfied that it complied with Clause E2 'External Moisture' of the Building Code. The matter to be determined is whether the monolithic cladding as installed to the walls of the building ('the cladding'), complies with Clauses E2 and consequently B2 (see sections 177 and 188 of the Act) rather than just E2 as stated by the authority.
