Specified systems

Compliance Consultants What are specified systems, and how does this relate to compliance consulting? Specified systems are defined as any element of the building’s infrastructure that has the potential to cause injury or death to those within said building, if the system fails in some way.

These systems are designed with the safety of your building’s occupants in mind, so their continual maintenance is of the highest priority, not merely for the legal implications of causing harm to those inside your building, but for yours & your employees, guests and visitors’ overall productivity and peace of mind. As a building owner, the responsibility falls entirely on you to insure against the failure of these systems, and to ensure that they continue to perform as was originally intended on the initial date of installation.

Building compliance inspection services may be necessary for your building if it has within it any of the following systems, specified by law in the Building Act 2004 -

  • Any kind of system put in place for the suppression of fires (such as sprinkler setups)
  • Any kind of warning system, whether manual or automatic, that warns about any sort of danger (including fires) except for any systems that are set up for, and specifically serve, only one household unit
  • Automated doors or windows (including those operated by electromagnetism)(i.e. Doors that are linked to the activation of fire alarms and close upon confirmation of a fire)
  • Any sort of system of emergency lighting
  • Escape route pressurisation systems.
  • Riser mains for use by fire services.
  • Any kind of method of prevention of backflow, including automated systems, connected to potable water supplies
  • Travelators, lifts, escalators, or any other conceivable iteration of solutions or systems designed specifically to move goods and people throughout your building
  • Systems of air conditioning or other kinds of artificial ventilation
  • Units designed for building maintenance that also provide access to exterior and interior walls of buildings.
  • Any kind of fume cupboard such as those found in standard laboratories
  • Listening systems designed for assistive purposes, such as audio loops
  • Systems in place for the control of smoke (in event of a fire)
