JUST RELEASED Suspended Ceilings Code of Practice

The Code of Practice for design, installation and seismic restraint of suspended ceilings is now available.

Association of Wall and Ceiling Industries

The Association of Wall and Ceiling Industries (AWCI) is a grouping of Building Industry organisations. The association includes contractors, tradesmen, manufacturers and suppliers. AWCI was established to represent the interests of members and their customers for interior wall and ceiling lining systems and related products.

The Association was formed in 1992 as the Interior Systems Association incorporating existing trade groups of suspended ceilings, plasterboard and fibrous plaster. The name of the association was changed in November 2005.

The Association of Wall and Ceiling Industries of New Zealand Inc. is the New Zealand representative of the Association of Wall and Ceiling Industries of Australia and New Zealand (AWCI).

In May 2002 the Association introduced new membership classes to provide for registration of trade qualified and suitably experienced trade businessmen operating in interiors.

Design, coordination and installation of suspended ceilings is about to change

Submissions have closed on the draft Code of Practice. The technical committee is busy considering these submissions. There will be more to report in early 2015.

New Consumer Protection Measures

New consumer protection measures come into effect from 1 January 2015. These changes should encourage a professional, no-surprises relationship between contractors and their clients.
