What is an independently qualified person (IQP)?

An IQP is a person who is accepted by a territorial authority, as being qualified to carry out or supervise all or some of the inspection, maintenance, and reporting procedures required for a specified system stated on a compliance schedule. An IQP can certify that those procedures have been fully complied with.

‘Independent’ means that the person has no financial interest in the building.

An IQP must have thorough knowledge of the Building Act 2004 and of other legal obligations under the Building Warrant of Fitness (BWOF) regime.

IQP’s are registered on the appropriate regional IQP register.
