With the submission for public comment regarding the new SOP and COE for HIs being posted, and all the flaws found therein, a Task Force of representatives of all major NATIONAL and NY STATE home inspection organizations decided to work together, and craft an alternate version of both docs for submittal to the NY State Home Inspection Council and the Department of State.
I had the pleasure of working with several ASHI, NAHI, and NYSAHI members to combine the best of all our association SOPs and COE philosophies into an SOP and COE that I feel may be the very best in the industry. If ASHI and NACHI ever really wanted to combine association SOPs into a single flavor, this could be the one.
Regardless, the COE and SOP versions we crafted have been forwarded to the state. Be sure and have your comments on the existing versions, as approved by the HI Council, postmarked by no later than the 2nd of July (Monday) or accept documents which will, in effect, put NY HIs out of business (literally).
