There now is a British Columbian association named the Home Inspectors Association British Columbia. They have also set the Scope of Inspection and also a Code of Ethics to further the industry locally. (HIABC)

The Scope of Inspection clearly delineates all items which the inspector must observe, describe, and also report on in his report. All major systems must be inspected and they include:

Structural Exteriors Roof
Plumbing Electrical Heating
Air Conditioning Interiors Garage
Insulation Chimneys Bathrooms
Kitchens Grounds Fireplaces

The Scope of Inspection also states general limitations and exclusions. These include what the inspector is not required to observe and describe. There is now a clear system in place so your Clients know exactly about which items a professional inspection will include. The Code of Ethics sets requirements of honesty, justice, courtesy, and integrity.

Clients can take comfort in knowing that their HIABC inspector values and upholds his integrity in all business transactions and dealings.
