The dispute arises from the territorial authority's decision to decline to accept that two proprietary Solartube roof flashings ('the flashings') comply with Building Code Clauses E2.3.2 and E2.3.7. In a submission to the Department, received on 2 July 2008, the territorial authority also said that the flashing did not comply with Clause B2 (refer paragraph 6). The matter for determination is whether the flashings as installed comply with Building Code Clause E2 'External moisture'. For the purposes of this determination: ' The roof penetration is treated as a pipe penetration with a diameter of 250mm. ' The flashings exclude any associated equipment installed though the penetration such as fans, light tubes and their weatherproof cowlings.
