Building Warrant of Fitness (BWOF)

Do you own a building? Are you a property manager?

Do you require annual Building Warrant of fitness or IQP Inspections?

This is particularly relevant to the owners of any building that is not a stand-alone house (unless the house has a cable car) because the building owner is responsible for ensuring any specified systems (which have mostly life safety systems) continue to ensure the building is safe for people to enter, occupy or work in.

Other systems included are:

  • Cable cars (including those for single household units)
  • Specified systems from Schedule 1 of the Building (Specified Systems, Change the Use, and Earthquake-prone Buildings) Regulations 2005:
  • Automatic systems for fire suppression (eg, sprinkler systems)
  • Automatic or manual emergency warning systems for fire or other dangers
  • Electromagnetic or automatic doors or windows (eg, ones that close on fire alarm activation)
  • Emergency lighting systems
  • Escape route pressurization systems
  • Riser mains for use by fire services
  • Automatic back-flow preventers connected to a potable water supply
  • Lifts, escalators, travellators, or other systems for moving people or goods within buildings
  • Mechanical ventilation or air-conditioning systems
  • Building maintenance units providing access to exterior and interior walls of buildings
  • Laboratory fume cupboards
  • Audio loops or other assistive listening systems
  • Smoke control systems
  • Emergency power systems for, or signs relating to, a system or feature specified for any of the above systems or features
  • Systems for communicating spoken information intended to help evacuation
  • Final exits
  • Fire separations (as defined in the Building Code)
  • Exit signage for evacuation
  • Smoke separations (as defined in the Building Code)
