​What is an Independent Qualified Person (IQP)

​What an IQP is qualified to do

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 .

Our tip

'Independent' means that the specialist has no financial interest in the building.
