Producer Statements

A producer statement is a document from a Council-approved expert. The Council may accept the producer statement as evidence that the design or building work complies, or will comply, with the Building Code.

The Council only issues a building consent or a code compliance certificate if it is reasonably satisfied that your building work complies or will comply with the Building Code, and a producer statement is one way of helping Council staff to decide.

Here are some examples of work where a producer statement might be submitted:

  • An engineer may provide a statement relating to foundations.
  • A mechanical engineer may provide a statement relating to heating ventilation and air-conditioning systems.
  • A tiler may provide  a statement  that the waterproofing membrane has been correctly applied.
