ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) has issued their first Appraisal Report in compliance with the New Zealand Building Code (NZBC) to Leviat for their Halfen HZA anchor channels and HZS channel bolts, breaking into the New Zealand building sector.
Leviat is a global leader in anchoring, reinforcing, framing, and façade fixing technology. Leviat has been a client of ICC-ES for nearly 20 years in several global markets. This new Appraisal Report by ICC-ES facilitates their entry into New Zealand by providing evidence of suitability with specified performance requirements of clauses B1 Structure, B2 Durability, aned F2 Hazardous Building Materials.
“I look forward to helping our clients expand into the New Zealand market with products that are expertly evaluated by ICC-ES. Our Appraisal Reports ensure that products are compliant with regulations under the Building Act 2004. Noting the recent establishment of ICC Oceania, I also welcome the opportunity to provide similar services not only for our existing clients into Australia, but also potential new domestic clients in both markets,” said Shahin Moinian, President of ICC-ES.
Evaluation Service Appraisal Reports produced by ICC-ES can be used as evidence of compliance with both the Australian National Construction Code (NCC) as well as the New Zealand Building Code (NZBC).
