He is working on the rules of evidence, filing instructions, etc.
Unlike civil court or other arbitration services, this arbitration panel does not require inspectors to appear in person (so you need not take off work). It will be available to inspectors everywhere. The service will also be made available to non-members (but for an additional fee).
NACHI's arbitration service is another piece of the puzzle in our quest for less expensive E&O insurance and will offer our members and consumers a better option than the courts for dispute resolution.
