Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF)

Would your business survive the consequences of an enforced building shutdown, bringing daily operations to a sudden halt, or a crippling financial penalty?
Protect your ability to operate your business by remaining compliant, without taking your core focus off your daily operations.

According to the NZ Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment website (

“A building owner needs to renew a building’s warrant of fitness (BWoF) every 12 months, signing, issuing and publicly displaying it to prove the building’s life safety systems (called specified systems) have been maintained and inspected.”

Failure to do so can result in hefty fines upwards of $20,000 or a possible building shutdown.

HSM’s team of registered IQP’s (Independent Qualified Person) are trained and authorised to undertake the inspection, maintenance and reporting procedures listed on the compliance schedule and issue Form 12As.
