As the body designated by the Secretary of State in England and Welsh Ministers in Wales under section 49 of the Building Act 1984 and regulations 3 and 5 of the Building (Approved Inspectors etc.) Regulations 2010, CICAIR Limited maintains and operates the Construction Industry Council Approved Inspectors Register (CICAIR).
To help Approved Inspectors operate to appropriate professional and ethical standards in the delivery of this objective, CICAIR has introduced this Code of Conduct which all Approved Inspectors are required to adhere to. Approved Inspectors are also required to adhere to the building control performance standards published by the Department for Communities and Local Government and the Welsh Government and to maintain the reputation of the building control profession and of CICAIR as the regulator.

The ACAI aims to further the development and understanding of private sector building control with the industry and general public. The Association is committed to maintaining appropriate codes of conduct and high professional standards commensurate with the functions of Approved Inspectors, as detailed in the Building Act 1984 and the Building Control Performance Standards.
