What is a compliance schedule?
A compliance schedule is a document issued by the building consent authority for buildings that contain specified systems. Specified systems include:
- Automatic systems for fire suppression
- Automatic or manual emergency warning systems for fire or other dangers
- Electromagnetic or automatic doors or windows
- Emergency lighting systems
- Escape route pressurisation systems
- Riser mains for use by fire services
- Automatic back-flow preventers connected to a potable water supply
- Lifts, escalators, travelators, 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
From 31 March 2008, a single household unit requires a compliance schedule if it contains, or is serviced by, a cable car.
A compliance schedule lists the systems and features, including the inspection, maintenance and reporting procedures needed to keep them in good working order. A compliance schedule must be kept on site and made available to building officers, Independent Qualified Persons (IQP’s), and authorised agents.
