Specified Systems Upgrade Requirements - Update from MBIE


It has come to Council's attention that across New Zealand there have been instances reported to the Ministry of Business Innovation & Employment (MBIE) where 'Independent Qualified Persons' (IQP's) have been insisting Building Owners upgrade their specified systems (eg fire alarms, sprinkler systems etc) to a current standard and withholding the requisite Form 12A's accordingly until the building works are undertaken. 

Please note that this is not in compliance with the current legislation. MBIE have drafted a letter titled "Upgrade of specified systems" dated November 2014 which is available to anyone who be affected by this issue - please read this by clicking on the link below.
