This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for nine year old addition to a house because it was not satisfied that the addition complied with Clauses B2 and E2 of the Building Code (First Schedule, Building Regulations 1992).
In order to determine whether the decision of the authority to refuse to issue the code compliance certificate was correct, the matters for determination, in terms of section 177(a) and 177(b) of the Act are:
- Whether the external envelope of the addition complies with Clauses B2 Durability and E2 External Moisture of the Building Code;
- Additional matters of code compliance considered in the decision;
- Whether the building elements to the addition comply with Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code, taking into account the age of the building work.
