Building Controls Update

Since publication on 10 April 2012, the Acceptable Solutions and the Verification Method for Protection from Fire (C/AS1-C/AS7 and C/VM2) have been subject to an ongoing process of continuing improvement. Many of the improvements have been and will be informed by feedback and requests for clarification.

MBIE have developed a list of FAQs so that the answers to common questions can be shared openly. These FAQs are continuously updated as part of our ongoing monitoring of the implementation.

The FAQs are split into the following sections:

Acceptable Solution’s C/AS1 – C/AS7 interpretations
• Verification Method C/VM2 interpretations
• Procedural issues
