Send applications for material approval to approvedmaterials@ccc.govt.nz

Each application for material approval must:

1. State the network or networks where the material is suitable for use

2. State the product type for each product.  Product types should be those listed on the approved materials list

3. List the brand name, manufacturer and suppliers for each product

4. Include a third-party certificate, complete with accompanying schedule, showing the product complies with the manufacturing standard for the product type as listed on the approved materials list.

5. Include a third-party certificate showing the manufacturer's quality assurance system complies with ISO 9001.

Material approvals expire on the earliest certification expiry date, that is whichever is earlier of the expiry dates of the manufacturing standard certification or the ISO 9001 certification.  Where a certificate is open-ended and has no expiry date, we will assume a one-year timeframe for that certificate.

The approved materials committee aims to meet monthly for discussion and consideration of new applications.  Approval of applications for existing product types, where the application includes all required information, typically occurs within one to five weeks dependent on when we receive the application relative to the meeting.  Where we need more information or approval requires creation of a new product type, longer timeframes will be involved.

Approval expires when certifications become out of date. To re-activate the approval and extend the expiry date, send new manufacturing certificates (including schedules) and/or ISO 9001 certificates to approvedmaterials@ccc.govt.nz

Updates do not require a committee meeting and therefore have shorter periods. Publishing the updated approved materials list to the Council website occurs on the last day of every month except December. For inclusion in the updated approved materials list new certificates must arrive a minimum of three working days before the end of the month.

Preferably, updates should occur before approval expiry. On reaching three months past approval expiry, an update is no longer possible and approval will require a new application.
