When do I need an Independent Qualified Person (IQP)?

If your building has a compliance schedule, you will need an Independent Qualified Person (IQP) to carry out or supervise inspections, maintenance and reporting procedures on each specified system, and provide a Form 12A annually.

The importance of the person to sign off on a 12A is to confirm that the council approves that this person is qualified to inspect, maintain, and report on each specified system in accordance with the requirements and to certify that these procedures have been followed. 

Independent also means the person has no financial interest in the building. 

Being IQP registered with all nationwide councils you can be rest assured that we are well versed in taking care of your building compliance requirements for doors around New Zealand.
