The updated Code has been formally submitted to the Minister for Infrastructure with all required supporting information.  Once the amended Code has been approved it will be available on this website.

Later this year the NZUAG will be looking to include the updated Code in our ongoing seminar series. Look out for details for how and when we will be implementing this on this website and in the NZUAG Newsletter.

In the meantime we have a recording system so that anyone who wishes to provide feedback on the Code at any time, up to when the next formal review process happens, may do so. We welcome any suggestions for improvement and will hold them to be considered in the next review.
