CICAIR launches consultation on new Indicative Sanctions Guidance

Posted: 13th May 2022

As the body designated by the Secretary of State in England and Welsh Ministers in Wales, CICAIR Ltd maintains and operates the Construction Industry Council Approved Inspectors Register (CICAIR).

One of CICAIR’s functions is to maintain and publish a Code of Conduct for Approved Inspectors setting out how Approved Inspectors should discharge their responsibilities. The Code is required to include disciplinary procedures and types of sanctions to be applied to Approved Inspectors who breach the requirements of the Building Act 1984, the Building (Approved Inspectors etc.) Regulations 2010, or the provisions of the Code of Conduct.

CICAIR have recently undertaken a review of our current Sanctions Guidance. As a consequence, the CICAIR Board is now undertaking a consultation exercise on new draft Indicative Sanctions Guidance, which it intends will replace the current Sanctions Guidance, Issue 1 – January 2017.

They are keen to hear the views of as many stakeholders as possible, so if you are aware of others who may be interested in providing their views on the proposed new Guidance, please do alert them to this consultation.

The consultation period will last for six weeks (until Friday 24th June 2022 at 5pm). Those wishing to participate in the
consultation are asked to provide feedback using an online survey, which can be found here.

A copy of the draft Indicative Sanctions Guidance can be found here.

Once the consultation deadline has passed, all feedback received on the proposed draft Indicative Sanctions Guidance will be considered by the CICAIR Board who will then decide on next steps in relation to the implementation of new guidance.
