Specified systems are systems or features in the building that contribute to the proper functioning of the building. These systems help to ensure that a building is safe and healthy for people to enter, occupy or work in.
The Compliance Schedule lists the building's specified systems and the inspection, maintenance and reporting procedures needed to keep the specified systems in good order.
Applications for a building consent need to contain Compliance Schedule information for:
- a new building with any specified systems
- building work in an existing building that includes modifying or adding to the specified systems. This requires an amendment to an existing compliance schedule.
All commercial, industrial and multi-unit residential buildings will include specified systems and a Compliance Schedule must be lodged with your application for a building consent. The only residential applications for a building consent that require a Compliance Schedule are those that include the installation of a cable car.
