Accidents of falling aluminum windows hitting passers-by appear in the news from time to time. To prevent such accidents from happening, regular window inspection is the key. The Buildings Department (BD), in a bid to prevent hazards caused by windows that have fallen into disrepair, has fully implemented the Mandatory Window Inspection Scheme (MWIS) in 2012, stipulating that owners of buildings aged 10 years or above (except domestic buildings not exceeding 3 storeys) and served with statutory notices are required to appoint a Qualified Person (QP) to carry out the prescribed inspection and supervise the prescribed repair works found necessary of all windows of the building.
