Building Warrant of Fitness
A building warrant of fitness (BWoF) is similar to a warrant of fitness for your car – certain features must meet minimum standards and you need to get a new WoF each year.
Generally, all buildings (other than single residential buildings) must have a Building Warrant of Fitness if it has certain types of safety systems installed. The local council specifies what systems must be installed and how frequently they must be inspected.
FSS has specialist software, purpose-built for the fire industry, that will ensure you can keep track of your inspection and BWoF obligations.
Fire Security Services can take care of your building warrant of fitness on your behalf. FSS is trusted as an Independent Qualified Person (IQP) by almost every council across the North Island.
FSS pride themselves on making it easy.
More detailed information for building owners and tenants - such as compliance schedules, Form 12As, Independent Qualified Persons (IQPs), and other building owner responsibilities - can be found on the Ministry of Building, Innovation and Employment website:
