ComplianceCheck™ - Design
Check Design Compliance
When planning an activity or development, a ComplianceCheck™ - Design can prove very useful. It checks that a building or planning project design complies with the relevant district and regional council rules, and with the national performance standards applicable in its location. It gives an early warning and opportunity to make corrections before a design is submitted to a client or council for approval. It can save time and money, and reduce risk and disappointment at the building or resource consent stage.
In this case, our ComplianceCheck™ - Design found that the surfboard sign design was non-compliant because it was too big! A change of sign design meant that the resource consent application could be processed as a "discretionary activity", and consent was eventually granted.

ComplianceCheck™ - Operations
Check Operational Compliance
When operating an activity, a ComplianceCheck™ - Operations can prove very useful to ensure on-going compliance with district, regional and national rules, and also with any conditions of consent.
ComplianceCheck™ - Operations checks that an existing activity is operating within the current rules, some of which may change over time. It also reviews whether any conditions of consent - for example monitoring reports required by councils - are current and robust. In this way business and activity operators can have legally-sound environmental assurance that their operations are compliant and not exposed to legal, financial or reputational risks.
In this case, our ComplianceCheck™ - Operations found that the design and planting of this new forest in the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme complied with the rules of the Scheme, and so carbon credits could be earned from the forest block.
