Commercial and Industrial Buildings
If you plan to build or renovate a commercial or industrial building, there are certain rules under the Building Act to comply with.
Certificate for Public Use
A Certificate for Public Use confirms that premises, affected by building work, are safe to be used by members of the public if the Code Compliance Certificate has not been issued.
Building Warrant of Fitness
All commercial building owners must have a current Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF). A BWoF confirms that the systems specified in a building's compliance schedule have been maintained and checked against the compliance schedule. This is done every 12 months.
It is the responsibility of the building owner to have a current BWoF. For more information on the process click on this link:
