Access Controlled Doors is a Specified System. Hence, it required a Building Consent.

Moreover, a building that has a safety and essential system known as specified system needs to have a compliance schedule. A compliance schedule is issued by Council and lists the building’s specified systems, and the inspection, maintenance and reporting procedures needed to keep them in good order.

A person who commits an offence under this section is liable on conviction to fine not exceeding $200,000 and, in the case of a continuing offence, to a further fine not exceeding, $10,000 for every day or part of a day during which the offence has continued. 

For New Building

For new building, the access control doors should be part of the building consent process. However, if in any way it was not included on your initial plan you will need to apply for an amendment or new building consent.

FOR EXISTING BUILDING

For an existing building that has an existing access control but for some reason not listed on their Compliance Schedule. The building owner needs to supply a Form 11 to the Council for it to be added to their Compliance Schedule. And for the addition or upgrade of access control, they will need to apply for a building consent prior to any work.
