CODEMARK CERTIFIER SUSPENDED

By NZHJ September 17, 2018 Building Materials

MBIE confirms that JAS-ANZ has suspended CodeMark certifier BEAL pending a resolution of issues.

MBIE announced on Friday the suspension of BEAL Certification Service's accreditation as a CodeMark product certification body.

The suspension, issued by the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ), is "due to BEAL not meeting CodeMark scheme accreditation requirements" but may be lifted by JAS-ANZ "if BEAL resolves the issues that led to its suspension".

BEAL has been given until 3 October to resolve the issues which, BEAL says on its website, "are expected to be resolved shortly."

While suspended, BEAL is not allowed to evaluate or certify new building products, however all current CodeMark product certificates which  have been issued by BEAL remain valid and, says MBIE, "can be relied on by building consent authorities."

To see a list of current accredited certification bodies visit Applying for CodeMark.
