If you own a building with specified systems – like sprinklers and automatic doors – you're responsible for making sure they are regularly inspected and maintained.
Homes with cable cars and most commercial buildings contain specified systems that need regular inspections and maintenance.
If you own a building with specified systems like automatic doors, lifts or sprinkler systems, or your home has a cable car, you must renew its building warrant of fitness every 12 months.
If you're building or renovating a building that will contain specified systems, you'll need a draft compliance schedule to get your building consent.
To meet the requirements of your compliance schedule, you'll need an independently qualified person (IQP) to inspect and maintain your building's specified systems.
