Tokyo Metropolitan Government commences the Certification System for the Apartments with Emergency Power Supplies

Post: Wednesday February 15, 2012




Tokyo Metropolitan Government will commence the certification system, “Tokyo Metropolitan Life Continuity Performance (LCP)”, for the apartments that do not collapse even after major earthquakes, and where residents can continue living in with the emergency power supplies provided by the property as of 2012.


It requires the properties to be equipped with an own power generator that is capable of supplying sufficient power to operate elevators and to supply water even when the public power supplies are cut.
All new and existing condominium and rental apartments are eligible to the LCP certification, which can be registered and publicized according to the application made by a management committee or an owner.  The registration demands the property to satisfy the New Quake-Resistance Standards, to be equipped with a private generator on site that is capable of supplying water and operating elevators at the same time, to have a system to recycle the heat generated from the generator for heating and water heater, etc.  The registration for the LCP certification is optional. Tokyo Metropolitan Government is hoping to develop a system that the LCP certification promotes the well-equipped apartments to consumers.
