Building Warrant of Fitness - BWOF

A Building Warrant of Fitness is very similar to the warrant of fitness that we get for our motor vehicle. For a motor vehicle, a series of inspections and tests are carried out by a qualified person (mechanic) to ensure that our motor vehicle is safe. Once the vehicle passes the inspections and tests, the mechanic will then issue our vehicle with a warrant of fitness.  This process is then repeated to ensure your vehicle is safe on an annual basis.

This is very similar for buildings. Each building has certain features (specified systems) that need to be inspected and tested regularly by an independent qualified person (IQP). Once these features pass the inspections and tests, the IQP will issue a 12A Certificate for these features.  Once the 12A certificates are issued, the building owner (or owner's representative) issues the BWOF (Building Warrant of Fitness). A copy is sent to the local Council (Territorial Authority), and a copy is also sent to the building to be put on display (similar to the warrant of fitness displayed on the windscreen of our motor vehicle). This process is then repeated annually to ensure the building is kept safe.
