What is an Independent Qualified Person (IQP)?
An IQP is a building specialist that we have identified as qualified to:
- inspect and report on specified building systems, e.g. fire sprinklers, automatic doors, lifts, smoke detectors, escalators, air conditioning systems
- follow the requirements set out in your building's compliance schedule
- supply any other supporting documentation confirming compliance, such as certificates of compliance
- maintain the systems to perform and operate effectively.
'Independent' means that the specialist has no financial interest in the building.
