Certificate of Design Work (Memorandum of Licensed Building Practitioners) – for restricted work
A certificate of design work identifies all the restricted building work that will be done and who will supervise the work. This will need to be completed by a licensed building practitioner.

Extra documents that may be required
You may need to provide extra documents depending on the type of building work you're proposing.
Third-party inspection list
If the work requires extra inspections by an engineer or specialist, you'll need to provide a list of the proposed inspections with the details of who will be carrying them out.
If your building work requires changing the loading of a sub-floor, large deck, wall and ceiling and/or roof bracing, you'll need to provide calculations showing that the new bracing is to be no worse than before or meets the required demand as per NZS3604.

Specific design (SD) wind documents
If your building is in a specific design wind zone, you'll need to provide a wind speed calculation from an engineer and evidence that the proposed products and systems you plan to use are within the design constraints and will meet the Building Code.
Weather-tightness risk matrix E2
If the building work will affect the weathertightness of the building, your designer will need to provide design details in compliance with the risk matrix from the acceptable solution or a specific design (SD) meeting the performance requirements of E2.

Quality assurance (QA) plans
A QA plan helps complex building projects demonstrate that the work meets the requirements of the building consent. It outlines the checks and documentation that must be provided before we issue a code compliance certificate.

Truss design producer statement (PS1)
If your building design includes the use of manufactured trusses, you will need to provide a producer statement (PS1) from the truss manufacturer declaring that the design will be in compliance with the Building Code.
Structural engineer producer statement (PS1)
A structural engineer PS1 is required for alternative structural solutions and verification methods.
