Building Warrant of Fitness (BWOF) Compliance Management in NZ
We have three central offices in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and provide building warrant of fitness to clients throughout NZ.
Does your building require a Building Warrant of Fitness?
A building warrant of fitness confirms that the specified systems identified on your building’s compliance schedule are properly maintained and tested during the previous year.
Councils require all commercial or industrial buildings or office blocks to have a compliance schedule. A compliance schedule is an inventory of all the specified systems required in your building to ensure your building is safe and healthy for members of the public to entre, occupy or work there.
IQP’s or Independent qualified persons, like Guardian Alarms, are authorised by councils to inspect and certify that the specified systems identified on your buildings compliance schedule meet the requirements for performance standards, inspections, testing and reporting procedures to keep them working properly.
A Building Warrant of Fitness must be displayed on site in a public area and must be visible to anyone entering the building. Failure to display a current Building Warrant of Fitness can result in prosecution and fines of up to $20,000.00.
