Claims against Approved Inspectors what's the latest?

AIs must be registered with the Construction Industry Council Approved Inspectors Register (CICAIR), be re-approved every 5 years and must have appropriate insurance cover. The Building Act 1984 is the primary legislation which governs AIs with secondary legislation such as the Building Regulations and the Building (Approved Inspectors etc.) Regulations 2010 providing further guidance.

An Approved Inspector (“AI”) is an individual or organisation that privately and independently verifies that the Building Regulations have been complied with in a building project. This verification used to be conducted by the Building Control departments of Local Authorities only.
