Australia and New Zealand Evaluation

Certify Your Products for Distribution in Australia and New Zealand

Evaluation Service Appraisal (ESA) Reports produced by ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) can be used as evidence of suitability to the National Construction Code (NCC) as well as the New Zealand Building Code (NZBC).

The NCC provides the minimum necessary requirements for safety, health, amenity and sustainability in the design and construction of new buildings throughout Australia. Fundamentals of the International Building Code, used in the U.S, are aligned with requirements of the NCC, allowing for a synchronized evaluation process.
ICC-ES maintains accreditation for product approval to Australian and New Zealand building codes in our scope of services. Let ICC-ES facilitate your building product's market entry in this region!
