Compliance schedule information to be supplied with a CCC Application
Once building work is complete and all the specified systems (that were part of the building work) have been installed in the building and are capable of performing to the performance standards set out in the building consent, the following information may be requested;
Compliance certificates/installers producer statements
When the building consent is issued the requirement for any compliance documents, third party inspections and producer statements are recorded as required documentation and attached to the building consent (Form 5). Note: an as-built plan may be required to support a third party inspection.
A full set of specified system information sheets
Even though these may have been supplied or requested to be supplied as part of the building consent application, a complete set will be requested prior to issue of the code compliance certificate. This is to ensure the compliance schedule is correctly issued in reflection of the final as-built layout of the specified systems in the building.
When completing this form please make sure:
- one form is used for each specified system
- the make, model and location for all systems in the building are specified on the correct specified system information sheets
- the correct performance standard (including the year of the standard) is specified for each specified system being added or altered as part of the building consent. When nominating the chosen standard, make sure to check that the performance standard identified in the fire report or other consultant/s documents matches with the building consent (Form 5)
- the correct inspection, maintenance and reporting standard (including the year of the standard) is specified on each specified system form. When nominating the standard, ensure it corresponds with the building’s current compliance schedule (if one has previously been issued) and matches the standard identified in the fire report or other consultant/s documentation contained in the building consent
- under the inspection and maintenance section the correct section of the inspection and maintenance standard is referenced. When nominating the sections of the chosen inspection and maintenance standard, ensure to check these correspond with the building’s current compliance schedule (if one has previously been issued). For example, the inspection and maintenance regime for SS 4 Emergency Lighting Systems could be AS/NZS 2293.2:1995 sections 1, 2 and appendices as cited under MBIE guidance document NZBC F6/AS1:2014 Amendment 4
- if the inspection and maintenance regime is to be undertaken in accordance with the compliance schedule handbook, ensure that the year, section and clauses are identified. Check these correspond with the building’s current compliance schedule (if one has previously been issued). For example, the inspection and maintenance regime could be Compliance Schedule Handbook: 2014 Clause 15.4, B.1-B.8
- the correct 'use' that relates to crowd activity is referenced on each specified system information sheets
- the correct inspection frequency is listed (as per the nominated inspection and maintenance standard) on each specified system form.
Deviations between what was consented and what was installed can in some cases require either a minor variation to be submitted or an Amendment if required, and can delay the issuing of the CCC & compliance schedule until resolved
