You need to have an RealMe login to use the online evacuation scheme service.
You can use the same RealMe login to manage multiple buildings regardless of whether you are acting as an individual building owner or as an agent.
To find out more about evacuation schemes, read the Fire and Emergency New Zealand Guide to Evacuation Schemes
A building owner must ensure the building complies with the Fire Service Act 1975 ("Act") and the Fire Safety and Evacuation of Buildings Regulations 2006 ("Regulations"). Some buildings, if they are used in whole or part for one or more of the following purposes, must have an approved evacuation scheme:
Owners of buildings with an automatic sprinkler system (which meets the criteria set out in the Regulations) and which are only used for either (2) or (3) (but not both of those uses) do not need an approved scheme. However, owners of those buildings must give the National Commander notice that the building does not need an evacuation scheme, in the form set out in the Regulations. A notification form is available from the Printable Forms Page.
