Consumer Protection Measures

Consumer Protection Measures, as part of the Contract Amendments Act, were passed into NZ law on 1st January 2015.  For contracts of over $30,000 (including GST) mandatory written contracts are required and you need to familiarise yourself with these new regulations. Here we provide our members with some links to vital information regarding this:

Construction Contract Amendment Bill

Important changes came into effect from 1 December 2015:

Further changes come into effect from 1 September 2016 (the Act will apply to design, engineering and quantity surveying work), and from 31 March 2017 (retention money withheld under commercial construction contracts must be held on trust).

It is important that the industry understands and applies the changes, which enhance the way the Act will:

  • ensure a fair, balanced and appropriate payment regime
  • provide a fast and cost-effective adjudication process for people with disputes
  • provide enforcement mechanisms to recover any unmade payments
  • protect retention money withheld under commercial construction contracts
