Building Compliance and your Building Warrant of Fitness (BWOF)
Since the introduction of the Building Act the words Building Warrant of Fitness (BWOF), Independently Qualified Person (IQP), and compliance schedule have introduced new inspections, accountability, responsibility and liability to the building owner and IQP.
Fire Security Services quickly gained IQP status soon after the introduction of the Building Act for all fire and related features and systems. With the Building Act allowing a building owner to delegate the signing of the BWOF, Fire Security Services were able to provide a building compliance solution issuing the BWOF on the owner’s behalf, in addition to completing the required IQP and owner inspections in line with the Building Act.
With Fire Security Services issuing over 1000 BWOF’s each year, we have gained a professional and reliable reputation from the 75 local councils that we issue BWOF’s to. With instant fines allowed to be issued by local councils for non compliance in addition to legal implications for more serious offences it is very important that you use a company that not only knows the Building Act but is able to cooperate with the councils who enforce the law. Why not call your local Fire Security Services branch and discuss what we are able to offer you in terms of your building compliance requirements.
