Apart from mandatory building inspection, owners are encouraged to volunteer at any time to arrange inspections and repairs of their buildings/premises or the windows therein.
The Hong Kong Housing Society (HKHS) has launched the Voluntary Building Assessment Scheme (VBAS) to give positive recognition to well-managed and properly maintained buildings.
Buildings certified by the VBAS will be recognised by the BD as having fulfilled the requirements under the MBIS and MWIS (in respect of windows in common parts only) within the respective inspection cycles.
The HKHS started receiving applications from building owners for participating in the VBAS in July 2012.
