A tidy up has seen the South Waikato Dis­trict Coun­cil’s Build­ing Team re­tain ac­cred­i­ta­tion as a Build­ing Con­trol Au­thor­ity.

In­ter­na­tional Ac­cred­i­ta­tion New Zealand (IANZ) au­dited the coun­cil over four days in Au­gust look­ing at ev­ery as­pect of the con­sent­ing process in­clud­ing vet­ting, pro­cess­ing and in­spec­tion. This week ac­cred­i­ta­tion was reis­sued.

While over­all things were good there were a few small pro­ce­dural items that the team

‘‘We are very pleased with the feed­back from the asses­sors.’’

needed to tidy up first.

Many of these were as­so­ci­ated with the cur­rent tran­si­tion pe­riod be­tween the old sys­tem be­ing used and the new Al­phaone sys­tem.

The coun­cil’s Reg­u­la­tory Group Man­ager Sharon Robin­son said the coun­cil was pleased with the out­come.

‘‘This en­sures the coun­cil can con­tinue to de­liver a cost ef­fec­tive build­ing con­trol ser­vice to res­i­dents and ratepay­ers,’’ she said.

The coun­cil’s build­ing con­trol man­ager Kevin Duthie echoed Robin­son’s thoughts and said feed­back from asses­sors was pleas­ing.

‘‘We are very pleased with the feed­back from the asses­sors,’’ he said.

‘‘They ac­knowl­edged that our sys­tem has ma­tured well over the years and this trans­lates into ef­fi­cient pro­cess­ing.’’
