BU544.jpgBRANZ Appraisals provide an independent and rigorous assessment of building products, materials, systems and methods of design and construction. An Appraisal considers a product's fitness for purpose and Building Code compliance.

Appraisals cover a wide range of products including roofing, wall claddings, wall finishes, insulation, damp-proof courses, flashings, adhesives, sealants and fixings.

Architects and designers have an important responsibility when selecting materials and systems. BRANZ Appraisals provide a base for selections and decisions to be made on.

This bulletin describes the role of Appraisals, how they should be used and the process of obtaining an Appraisal.
