Regulation 9 of the Building (Approved Inspectors etc.) Regulations 2010 and the Approved Inspectors' Code of Conduct operated by CICAIR Ltd, the body designated by the Secretary of State to carry out executive and administrative functions relating to the appointment of approved inspectors, already require approved inspectors to act independently of external influences in carrying out building inspections. The Government has no plans to amend Regulation 9.
