Engineering Standards

Regional Infrastructure Technical Specifications

The Regional Infrastructure Technical Specification (RITS) replaces the Hamilton Infrastructure Technical Specifications.

The RITS is Council’s current Engineering Code of Practice and is a means of compliance with the District Plan engineering and utilities requirements.  

Although alternative methods will be considered at the time of making an application, and will be evaluated as part of the resource consent process, using the RITS will help ensure the process to gain resource consent and comply with conditions is quicker and therefore less costly.

Council is providing a transition period until 1 November 2018 after which the RITS will be the default requirement for resource consents.
