With the globalisation of structural steel supply chains for New Zealand building and infrastructure projects, more robust procurement practices are required to demonstrate product conformity than are currently stipulated in the relevant material supply standards and the New Zealand Building Regulations.
Recognising this reality, SCNZ has developed the New Zealand Guide to Sourcing Compliant Structural Steels
in collaboration with HERA. The intention is that this document will simplify and unify practice for demonstrating
conformity of structural steels in New Zealand. This Guide covers the supply of structural steels (long and plate products) and welded sections for locally and internationally fabricated structural steelwork. This Guide only covers welded sections manufactured to AS/NZS 3679.2.
