This new registration category for building inspectors is aimed at protecting the public from substandard building practices as well as boosting the professionalism of the sector. This registration will provide a standard scope of service to ensure that all stakeholders have clear indicators in terms of the requirements and expectations pertaining to building inspectors. Furthermore, the registration will provide a foundation for the professionalisation of building inspectors within South Africa and help to further the legitimisation of this occupational practice.
The South African Council for the Project and Construction Management Professions (SACPCMP) is the regulatory authority in South Africa that will register building inspectors as from October 2019.
