Building Warrant of Fitness

Building owners are responsible for keeping their buildings SAFE and HEALTHY. This means keeping the life safety features and essential systems in good working order.

The maintenance procedures for these systems are listed in a Compliance Schedule. Once a year the owner goes on record to state that those procedures have been followed.

An Independent Qualified Person (IQP)

A person (or firm) registered by the Council as qualified to inspect certain Compliance Schedule items and ensure that the necessary maintenance occurs. Independent means that the person has no financial interest in the building.
