Quality underpins everything we do. It is at the very core of our values, and it enables BRANZ Group to be a credible, sought after and respected enterprise that inspires the industry to provide better buildings for New Zealanders.
On 4 October 1976, BRANZ was one of the first laboratories in New Zealand to be registered as an accredited testing laboratory. The accreditation was in the field of physical testing (our fire laboratory), and the accreditation has been retained and the range of tests expanded over subsequent years.
Our test reports and certificates are accepted in 68 economies around the world. Our accreditation is issued by IANZ under the International Laboratory standard ISO/IEC 17025:2005. Current Acceditations are Mechanical (918) covers weathertightness and strand relaxation. And, Applied Physics (37) covers fire testing, fire resistance testing and thermal insulation.
